Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY – Two Jewish men were viciously assaulted early Wednesday, in two separate unprovoked attacks against Jews in Crown Heights.

The two attacks occurred just after 1 am.

One of the assaults took place at 1505 President Street, and one at the NE corner of President Street and Albany Avenue, police said.

Surveillance footage from one of the attacks shows a group of 3 black teenagers approaching an elderly Jewish man, punching and knocking him over, then continuing to kick and punch the Jewish victim as he lay on the floor.

Shomrim volunteers were called, and after a brief canvas were able to locate three attackers.

The attackers are between the ages of 18-21, and were placed under arrest.
