Spring Valley, NY – A Jewish man was assaulted in an unprovoked attack in Spring Valley on Shabbos, in what Police are investigating as a hate crime.

Sources tell that a Hispanic man driving a taxi stopped his car on South Madison Avenue near Singer Street, got out and approached the Jewish man and his brother walking together.

He started screaming “this is not Jewland and you have no royalties here!”.

The Jewish men ignored the man and continued walking.

The man then exited the American Latina taxi, and walked towards the victim and his brother. He shaped his fingers like a gun and poked it into one of their faces. He then punched him in his stomach and fled after they began screaming.

The Spring Valley Police Department is looking for the suspect and being assisted by Rockland County Sheriff Department.
