Borough Park, Brooklyn, NY - An angry man hurled an antisemitic remark at a New York Supreme Court judge and former councilman in Brooklyn.
Judge Noach Dear was near the Maimonides Medical Center in Borough Park when a man started yelling at him around 8 a.m.
Dear, who was wearing his yarmulke, ignored the man as he walked to his car, then the man yelled out, "You fucking Jew, don't you have a mouth?"
The judge got into his car and locked the doors. Then he noticed the man taking pictures of his license plate before he walked away.
Dear told police he believes the man mistook him for a member of the medical staff at Maimonides.
The man was described as white, with gray hair, about 5-foot-10 and wearing zig-zag black pants at the time. The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.
