Brooklyn, NY - Two Brooklyn men are under arrest for assault and a third suspect is being sought after an early morning beating that sent a 51 year old Jewish man to the hospital.

The incident took place in front of 1505 President Street in Crown Heights at 1 AM this morning.  Police said that the victim was knocked to the pavement and punched and kicked repeatedly by three attackers. 

Surveillance footage obtained by Crown Heights Shomrim captured the 24-second long beating and also showed the three suspects fleeing the scene.

The victim was transported to NYU Langone Hospital with cuts to his face and mouth.

Police later apprehended 18 year old Navar Walters of Crown Heights and 21 year old Teshon Bannister of East Flatbush, both of whom were charged with assault as a hate crime.  Police are still seeking a third suspect in regards to the incident.

We were told that there was now "dialogue" between the Black community and the Chassidim in Crown Heights, in an effort to bring peace, following the Crown Heights Pogrom of 1991. Well, whereas the "dialogue" (meetings, basketball games, kumbayas, etc.), may look good on paper, in reality, nothing much has changed. Jews are still getting beaten and robbed in Crown Heights by their law abiding neighbors. I can't understand why the Chassidim have not moved out of that area, to a safer area. It is true that now area is entirely safe. However, I'm afraid that what once occurred in Crown Heights (pogrom) could chas v'shalom reoccur.

For a fourth generation New Yorker, your English grammar, usage and spelling is horrendous. Maybe you"re going to the wrong schools and hanging with the wrong folk. Do you also have an accent?

really? i would think history has more than proven that he was right.
Whatever sort of makom sakanah it was back in the 60's/70's it is nowhere near anything like that today so bpashtus the rebbe was clearly right.

There was guy beat up in BP a few weeks ago on a random sunday morning (totally unprovoked) by a car service driver who took frumme yidden all the time. What does that prove?
Same in Marine Park on a bunch of occasions.

Crown Heights is not safe. Borough Park is much safer, and is a nicer area.

Actually, it looks like you're an idiot. Not that anyone cares one way or the other.

He is disagreeing with the rebbe. That's not disrespect.
