Shocking Video Shows Muslim Cab Driver Randomly Attack Elderly Orthodox Jew in Brooklyn
A shocking video has emerged of an elderly Jewish man getting pummeled by an attacker in the middle of a pedestrian crossing in Brooklyn, New York. The assailant knocked down the 62-year-old man before striking him multiple times.
The violent attack took place around 7.30am Sunday morning as the elderly man, clad in traditional black Jewish clothing, was heading towards a synagogue in the Borough Park neighborhood.
Surveillance footage shows a car pulling up at the curb in the view of the Jewish man. After what appears to be a brief verbal argument, a man gets out of the car and rushes towards the passerby chasing him down to the nearby zebra crossing.
Moments later, the 62-year-old is pinned to the ground and is being dragged by the assailant, randomly kicked on the head and back. As the elderly man attempts to stand up, he is immediately knocked back down on the ground. As the attacker proceeds thrashing the victim, another Orthodox Jewish man shows up and attempts to break up the fight, distracting the assailant's attention. While the perpetrator is chasing after the second man, the first victim takes the opportunity to flee.
