Brooklyn, NY - The NYPD confirmed today that an assault against an Orthodox Jewish student that took place Wednesday night in a Brooklyn college is being investigated as a hate crime.

The incident took place at 7:40 PM when an unidentified man bumped into a student in a hallway of the AB1 science building at Medgar Evans College in Crown Heights.  The victim was punched twice in the face with a closed fist and once in the stomach by the assailant who said, “I don’t like white boys. Leave the school, you Jew.”

A female Muslim student who was also in the hallway shouted at the attacker and called for campus security as the assault was taking place.

The suspect, who was described as a 6 foot tall black man weighing approximately 225 pounds, fled the scene on foot through the building’s main entrance.

The victim, who suffered pain and redness to the injured areas, refused on site medical attention.

Glen Caplin, a spokesperson for Medgar Evers, said that campus personnel stayed with the victim after the assault and that it is unknown if the suspect is a student at the college.

The assault is thought to be the first such incident to take place at the school and college president Dr. Rudolph Crew condemned the assault, noting that even a rare event of violence and ignorance is one too many.

“To attack someone because of his or her race or religious beliefs is appalling,” said Dr. Crew in a written statement.  “I want to make it clear that we have zero tolerance for this type of behavior and we will do everything in our power to ensure the assailant is found and held fully accountable for these hateful actions.”

Borough President Eric Adams expressed his conviction that yesterday’s violence would be a catalyst for even greater tolerance and solidarity at Medgar Evers.

“President Crew and I are united in our commitment to promoting diversity and the values that unite us as One Brooklyn,” said Adams.  “We will work together to address this isolated incident of ignorance, with confidence that the campus community will grow stronger in the face of hatred.”

“The fact that a Muslim woman came to the defense of an Orthodox Jewish man is a true reflection of the values that permeate this great institution,” added Dr. Crew.

Medgar Evers believed in integration, so it's ironic that a black man would try to compel a white/Jewish man to leave the building/school that bears Evers' name.

Because Brooklyn college is an established reputable college located in close proximity to many orthodox jewish neighbor hoods, affordability priced, where lots of jewish students have attended for 100 years.

To #7- It was not Brooklyn College, where this attack took place, but Medger Evers College, which is a separate institution of higher learning.

"So many of them are murdering" Really? Over a million Muslims live in Brooklyn, NJ. Was there a single murder in Years?

Why is it when a Jew gets beaten by a black, it is being "investigated' as a hate crime. Duh! When a black gets beaten the entire world instantly condemns this racist act?

In all the years I lived in Crown Heights, I never heard of a single white, let alone Jewish, student there. This is new that the student body is not all Black. I had to attend some meetings there occasionally, & I was very uncomfortable, the looks I got were unnerving, even though I was escorted by senior faculty. I actually agree with #1, I would not want my children going there, even for free.

Did you read that this happened in Medgar Evers College which is nowhere near nor has nothing to do with Brooklyn College?

True, this was not Brooklyn College.
False, Medgar Evers College is not considered to really be an institution of Higher learning.
By the way, my daughter is now in graduate school elsewhere but graduated Brooklyn. The courses, administration and student body are so overwhelmingly leftist and anti-Jew it is a miracle she got out alive. A call to the famous Borough Park Politician's office got no assistance.

you seem to be mister know it all about all the good muslims living around us for years and nothing happening . Do you ever think that it may come a day when they do start attacking us ? the germans also lived with the jews for years and then the holocaust happened.so stop trying to defend them every day while attacking israel and the the rest of us jews who see the reality of whats coming and dont live in a bubble

It wasn't Brooklyn College.

M.E. College is not a typical part of CUNY. It is run by Black people, For Black people and only Black people. They are known for basically helping their student body finagle programs to best benefit.
I suggest confronting the Dean and demandng the right for any Jewish student to come in with an armed guard. M.E. security should have no say because they so totally mismanged this event.

Not Brooklyn College, a Brooklyn College called Medgar Evers.
