Boca Raton, FL - Jewish Community On Edge Following Hate-Crime Attack On Chabad Student
Boca Raton, FL - Tensions are running high within the Jewish community following a possible hate-crime attack Saturday night during which a man riding a bicycle physically assaulted a local Chabad Center student while shouting anti-Semitic slogans.
WPTV.com (http://bit.ly/1MCBqxa) reports that the 19 year-old victim told police he was walking home in the 300 block of Northeast Second Street when a man on a bike passed him screaming, “Jews go back to Auschwitz. Hitler was right.”
The student said he shouted back, “Why don’t you come back here and say that,” after which the man reversed direction and started punching him after shoving him to the ground.
The victim, who claims he was unharmed in the melee, said he is “doing better,” but admitted it was ” bit nerve-wracking having someone scream at me these things.”
Police are asking anyone with information to call Detective Michelle Macy at 561-620-6222.
