Hasidic Jewish man stabbed on the street in New York

At night, a Chabad Hasidic Jewish man was stabbed in Brooklyn, New York.

On July 7, a young Hasidic Jewish man was walking at night in the Crown Heights neighbourhood in Brooklyn, New York, when two men approached and stabbed him, reports the Ynet.

According to a report of the incident, the two perpetrators asked the young man if he was Jewish, and then one of them stabbed him with a screwdriver. He suffered an injury on his arm and was taken to the hospital the following morning.

The investigation is ongoing to determine if the incident was a hate crime. According to reports, the Hasidic Jewish victim hardly speaks English but claims that he was asked if he was Jewish. Provided that is what the perpetrators asked, this is yet another antisemitic hate crime in New York.
