Brooklyn, NY - Detectives at the NYPD’s 70th Precinct are searching for a suspect who deliberately attacked a Jewish man in broad daylight in the heart of Flatbush as he walked down the street talking on his cell phone on Tuesday afternoon.

Police said that the incident took place at 3:10 PM in front of 1314 Avenue J.  Video surveillance obtained from the scene show the suspect walking down the street carrying a blue shopping bag and muttering to himself “[obscenity] kicking his [obscenity],” just seconds before mumbling something unintelligible and bumping into his victim, punching him repeatedly and kicking him in the back. Staring the victim down, the suspect repeating loudly, “[obscenity] kicking his [obscenity],” before calmly walking away from the scene.

Police said that the suspect was approximately 30 years old, approximately 5’11” tall, with closely cropped hair and was wearing a blue t-shirt bearing the words “STAGE CREW” in large letters, grey jeans and white sneakers at the time of the attack.  The victim sustained only minor injuries in the incident.

Both police and Flatbush Shomrim were called to the scene but were unable to apprehend the suspect.  Bob Moskovitz, executive coordinator of Flatbush Shomrim said that he has received numerous calls from people who say they have seen the suspect in the area, and that he likely lives nearby.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Crime Stoppers Hotline by phone at 800-577-TIPS, by text at 247637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577 or online at www.NYPDCrimeStoppers.com.

Actually number 1 is correct. There is a pizza shop where you see the outdoor children's horse ride, and the attack happened right in front of the fruit store.

This was an instance of where too people accidentally bumped into each other; the attacker, was obviously a psycho. One of these days, he will repeat that scenario on the wrong person, and will get the heck beaten out of him, or possibly worse.
