BORO PARK (VINnews) — The NYPD has announced an arrest in the case of the multiple egg throwing attacks that plagued the Boro Park community as of late.

Police said that 18 year old Mohid Hoque who lives on Ave C in Brooklyn was charged with Hate Crime Assault (3 Counts), Hate Crime Aggravated Harassment (3 Counts),Hate Crime Harassment 1st (3 Counts), Hate Crime/Reckless Endangerment 2nd

The arrest was made by the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force (HTCF), who have investigating these attacks since they occurred.

There are still multiple suspects sought by police in connection with at least 5 other similar attacks. As previously reported by VIN News, recent attacks included an egg being thrown into a Boro Park Synagogue, and an innocent mother and child attacked by egg throwers while walking in the street.

Brooklyn’s Jewish politicians reacted to the news of the arrest by thanking the NYPD for their vigilance.

Councilman Chaim Deutsch sent an additional statement to VIN News:

“I am thankful for the swift work of the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force in apprehending a suspect in last weekend’s anti-Semitic egg attacks.

We are sending a clear message that hatred and bias of any kind will not be tolerated in New York City. No stone will be left unturned in the pursuit of the perpetrators. I will continue to partner with my colleagues to push for harsher penalties in these cases.

Boro Park Shomrim, as well as Councilman Kalman Yeger and Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, and other community leaders deserve enormous credit for their vigilance and persistence as we face a rise in hate crimes here in NYC, and specifically in Boro Park.

I am committed to continuing to fight for the resources we need to combat hate, including education in schools, additional police coverage, and aggressive penalties.”

  1. Bets on that Hizhonor will covertly instruct the court to let this chayah loose. His liberal thinking will concoct an excuse that is as bizarre as, “He didn’t like eggs and wanted others to know about his preferences.”

  2. One 18 year old moron with eggs can frighten an entire community. Meanwhile little Israel can defend itself with MUSCLE against 400 million arabs! Cowardice encourages evil.

  3. GM:

    Not sure what your message is, but I think you are missing the issue. The egg throwing, if this was all that was happening would be comical. All one would need is a schmatte to clean up the mess, and move on. The trend will go out of style, and after a short spike of these incidents, they will become obsolete. No, they are not meaningless, nor was the knockout game. But with time, these fade away. But the trend of increased hate crimes that victimize Yidden is continuing and accelerating. Today it’s egg throwing, tomorrow it’s ch”v violent attacks. We have been subjected to all of that, and the role of the courts and law enforcement has been dismally weak. The real answer lies in vigilantes taking law into their own hands, but this was stopped many years ago by liberal thinkers that had begun to invade the political scene.
