Midwood, Brooklyn, NY - Five Jewish Teenagers Indicted in Attack on Arab-American Man
Midwood, Brooklyn, NY - Five Jewish teenagers have been indicted in the attack on an Arab-American man in Brooklyn.
Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes says the teens have been charged with gang assault and menacing.
According to prosecutors, the teens attacked the 24-year-old victim as he ate ice cream outside a Dunkin’ Donuts on the 1500 block of Avenue “M” in Brooklyn section of NY last October. One of the teens knocked the ice cream from the man’s hands as another spit in his face while another teenager held the victim from behind so he couldn’t fight back calling him a “terrorist” and “Go back to your country”. One of the assailants was armed with a pair of brass knuckles and broke the victim’s nose.
An employee from the store called police.
Three of the suspects face up to 15 years in prison.
