A group of hateful, motorcyclebound
thieves remain at large for
shouting anti-Semitic slurs at a
man during a robbery attempt in
Williamsburg earlier this month.
The NYPD released on June 11
video footage of the incident, which
took place at about 4:10 pm on the afternoon
of June 2 in front of 685 Metropolitan
Law enforcement sources said
the three suspects, while riding a
pair of scooters, pulled up to the location
and confronted a 21-year-old
man. They then shouted anti-Semitic
statements at the man while
demanding his money.
Cops said the victim refused
their request and then pulled out
his cellphone to call police. As he
did so, authorities noted, one of the
suspects grabbed the victim’s yarmulke
off his head, then bolted with
the other two suspects northbound
along Manhattan Avenue.
The incident was later reported to
the 94th Precinct, which referred the
case to the NYPD Hate Crimes Task
Force for further investigation.
Anyone with information regarding
the incident or the suspects’
