New York - A Brooklyn councilman is upping the reward money for the arrest and indictment of the individual responsible for assaulting and raping an Orthodox Jewish 82 year old Brighton Beach woman and is calling on the NYPD to classify the attack as a hate crime.

Councilman Chaim Deutsch issued a statement this afternoon pledging a $5,000 reward in the case. The NYPD, which identified 18 year old Asa Robert as a suspect in the crime based on fingerprints taken from the crime scene, has already announced a $2,500 reward for information in Monday’s brutal attack.

As previously reported on VIN News, the suspect entered the victim’s home at about 1:40 AM on Monday, forcibly raping the woman approximately two and a half hours later.

“He was in this woman’s apartment for several hours but only raped her after he was made aware that she was religious and of the Jewish faith,” Deutsch told VIN News.  “He made her swear on a bible that she wouldn’t call the police.  I am urging the NYPD, the Hate Crimes Unit and the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office to treat this as a hate crime because of these actions.”

Deutsch said that the suspect, who has several prior arrests for robbery and gang related assaults,  also launched a brutal physical assault against his victim, throwing the 82 year old woman against the wall.

“This guy should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Deutsch. “I have zero mercy for him.”

Stinking American Criminal Justice System...cruel, evil, insensitive. They tolerate gangs here and are far from G-d. What happens to a rapist under Islamic rule? These Xristians couldn't care less about their population, nor is there much love of one for the other. Ever see or hear of demonstrations decrying the murder of Xristians and burning of their churches in various locations? No! The American jungle. If Asa Robert is guilty he should be executed within one month after a fair trial. 'The 7 Noahide Laws' NOW! Civilization NOW!

Hate crime ? Enough with the nonsense. Not everything is a hate crime he's just a criminal on the street. And needs to be caught. If a councilman needs exposure and publicity he should try something else.
