A Chasidic Jewish man was struck down by a car in a shocking incident on Friday night in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
The visibly Jewish man was beginning to cross the street on Friday night at about 6 pm on the corner of Albany Avenue and Union Street when a car turned the corner and struck him down.
Surveillance video obtained by the NYPD shows the victim, a Lubavitch man in his 50s, at the corner when a white sedan appears to stop at the light, and then proceeds to drive ahead without warning, mowing down the Jewish man. The driver in his vehicle then fled the scene.
“It appears that the perp intentionally struck the victim,” a police source said.
The victim suffered a broken leg and was treated by Hatzalah.
The NYPD has deemed the attack as a possible bias incident and the Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.
99 percent of perpetrators have a connection to someone who lives at 446 Kingston and the building across the street
The building across 446 is filled with criminals. Shame on the landlord that rents to these people in the heart of crown heights. Women and children are frightened to walk there when the residents are all out. Hameyvin yovin
Pretty sure it’s a co-op and there is no one landlord that owns it all.
I am talking about ACROSS 446. That building is filled with dangerous people. Summer and winter they hang out. This is the HEARt of crown heights. There is no shortage of people who would rent those apartments. But hey, the owner gets his rent on time from the government so who cares what we all think and how our kids feel.
446 is a coop the the one across is Not
every jew a 22
You obviously have never taken a gun safety course if you think having a pistol would have solved anything in this case.
A vehicle could be considered as an imminent, deadly threat with at least the attempt to cause grave bodily harm.
He could have taken out his gun and shot at the car
this is clearly a sick hateful person who was driving. this is what the death penalty is for
Was this a hit and run?
If this psychopath is not quickly punished to the fullest extent of the law and it is not well and fully publicised then this will NOT end. It is a matter of pikuach nefesh and obligation on all askanim to make sure this happens.
so why did you imbeciles vote hochul????
Please let it go regarding Hochul. No politician can save anyone. Torah says it Itself: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his hope.”
We need Moshiach! We demand Moshiach now!
Driving into someone with a car used as a weapon is attempted murder and no lighter charge should be accepted. Make the animal pay.
It is far worse than an ordinary attempted murder case because it was a hate crime with the intent to kill. He should be tried as a terrorist if it would up the punishment even further.
Name for tehillim?
name has not been released.
When will the governor ban cars so this never happens again
Try and imagine the fallout if this perpetrator and victim profiles were reversed! The response needs to be extremely strong… I m not going to pretent to know what that even looks like, but the conversation needs to take place as to what this strategy needs to entail.
If it was reversed…. I can remember summer day in 1991 that this happened, except it was in fact an accident and completely unintentional, and it resulted in riots.
As you can see she ran right away and was yelling for someone to call Hatzalah! Go you!
Verses the two girls who just sat by in 770 while the ____ threw eggs down on the men below.
Hope the man injured has an immediate refuah shelema!
If you see something do something!
I’m not sure what the connection is, but do you think those girls had a clue?! Who would imagine such a disgusting action? It was a strange sight that 2 men came in, but the whole thing was so fast, they probably didn’t have time to process it until later.
It amazes me how silly some people’s thought process is.
I was one of the girls who witnessed the 770 incident. We had no idea was going on.
What a silly silly comment you posted.
Even if we did realize- should we have grabbed the bochurim and held them down so they could not run awayv
What a silly comment lol
Why isn’t this headlines on every news channel? We need the FBI here NOW
This will only end if for every innocent jew that is mowed down c”v, ten random non Jews are immediately mowed down in retaliation.
לעשות נקמה בגוים
Sadly, diplomacy doesn’t work in NY
It amazes me to see how “members” of our community happily rent apartments in the prime of our neighborhood to criminals, drug dealers, rapists and murderers. And when they give $5 donation to a community school or organization, the whole community comes out to show them recognition…
There should be massive demonstrations outside the offices of these “community members” who happily make these prime apartments into drug infested, rapist occupied apartments.
This is where the eggs (and anger) need to go…
Time to stand up to these slob-lords.
Landlord need to rent only to jews
The building need to be taken away from them
I have no intention of excusing this criminal terrorist driver or the criminal actions of other criminals in this city.
My comment was general in nature and not connetcted to this particular incident.
Every jew living in ny is a sitting target.
Time to move out in droves and let the state and city lose more taxpayers. The state and city have gone in the gutter.
I don’t think this was the Rebbe’s approach when crime was rampant years ago. The Rebbe said there are many people that don’t have a choice, because of parnoso, or elderly Yidden, etc
We cannot abandon them, but we must be proactive with shmira, political pressure, etc
We need to riot I the streets and close traffic on Eastern park, then the mayor might get the message.
We need to do teshuva!!
Wishing a quick and speedy recovery tot he victim!!
While I agree that the savage must be caught and quartered, please everyone teach your babies and adults to constantly watch all cars as you cross. Every time I drive anywhere in CH, it is so stressful to see jillions of adults and children not being careful and vigilant as they cross the street, or they frequently stand on the corner but still IN the street, waiting for the light to change. They say, “Oh I would be able to hear a car,” but you wouldn’t, my beautiful, because electric cars don’t make any noise. This beautiful Chossid did everything… Read more »
This was an intentional attack
Wouldn’t be surprised if this sick excuse for a human being borrowed the idea from some terrorist handbook, the kind studied at some training camps in the Middle East. Aibershter,please, it’s time for Moshiach NOW!
Here’s an afterthought: Since this involved a potential vehicular homicide maybe someone wants to get Sharpton to come down and start a few days of rioting and mayhem, targeting others in the neighborhood. If I recall correctly, he specializes in this kind of stuff.
We need securer borders and a vetting process like Israel has on immigration here in the US. That is the 1st step is stopping these kinds of senseless attacks.
