On Tuesday evening, October 16, a Bochur was viciously attacked outside of Chovevei Torah, (Lubavitcher yeshiva Zal). The Bochur was innocently sitting alone on a bench on Eastern Parkway, when two black males approached him, one of them approached him front and began conversing with him, apparently to distract him, as the other attacked him from behind. The attackers, described as black males in their early twenties beat him relentlessly for several minutes, then fled for their lives, the attackers did not steal anything from him, they purely beat him out of anti-Semetic hatred.
Following the attack, the Bochur, who is now listed in stable condition called Shmira, but unfortunately, the attackers were not yet found. Shmira units and and several units from the 77th precinct are continuing to search for the attackers.
Over the past several weeks, there have been racial beatings in Crown Heights, victims were attacked while walking on the streets, severly beaten, and taken by Hatzalah to the hospital. Shmira is asking everyone to be aware of your surroundings, walk in well lit areas, and try not to walk alone.
Homeowners: please check your doors and windows to your home and garage and make sure it is properly lit at night and properly secure. All residents: please do not walk alone at night, and try to walk in pairs, and always be aware of your surroundings. If someone tries to walk up to you, and you feel threatened, run away or scream for help.
Always call Shmira @ 718-221-0303 and 911.
