Brooklyn, NY - Detectives in the 66th precinct are on the lookout for a group of four men who robbed and assaulted an Orthodox Jewish man Monday night in Borough Park.

The unidentified 49 year old victim was walking on 38th Street near 15th Avenue at about 9:30 last night when the attack took place.  Police said that one of the suspects reportedly put the man in a chokehold and threw him to the ground.  Members of the group kicked and choked the victim before taking his wallet and fleeing the scene.

The victim made his way to a nearby Jewish residence where homeowners contacted police, Shomrim and Hatzolah.

Mutty Brauner of Borough Park Shomrim said that no words were exchanged during the beating and that police are not investigating the incident as a bias crime.


According to Brauner the victim did not appear to have sustained serious injuries and because he was too shaken up to give a full report to police, Shomrim was asked by the NYPD to find evidence that corroborated the victim’s statements.   

Private security footage obtained by Shomrim showing four men in hooded jackets racing down a nearby street gave police sufficient reason to open an investigation into the incident.

City Councilman David Greenfield is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the four suspects.  Tips should be called into the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or Borough Park Shomrim at 718-871-6666.

" because he was too shaken up to give a full report to police" If he doesn't give a statement to the police, what are they supposed to investigate?
