Brooklyn, NY – A group of teenagers targeted a Jewish boy on a Brooklyn street in their latest antisemitic act, according to police.

Authorities believe they are the same teenagers who assaulted a 10-year-old girl and threw a pipe through the window of a local synagogue.

Surveillance video of the incident shows the teens knowing the hate off of the 14-year-old Hasidic boy in Bedford-Stuyvesant before sprinting away.

“An individual was pushed and had his hat knocked off, then a young girl was pushed to the ground, thankfully not seriously injured, and then the pipe that went through the window,” Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said. “Rest assured that these crimes are treated with the utmost importance and our Hate Crimes detectives are diligently working to bring all those responsible to justice.”
