Police in Queens are searching for a group of teenagers involved in a series of disturbing anti-Semitic attacks that took place on the third day of Passover. The suspects, two boys and a girl, reportedly targeted a 49-year-old man at the intersection of Caffrey Avenue and Mott Avenue around 2:45 p.m. Friday.
According to authorities, the teens began hurling rocks at the man while shouting hateful remarks. The girl in the group then allegedly threatened the victim with a razor. Fortunately, a Good Samaritan intervened, causing the suspects to flee the scene.
However, the teenagers’ spree of hate did not end there. Approximately seven hours later, they targeted another individual at the junction of Brookhaven Avenue and Beach 17 Street. The group reportedly taunted a 48-year-old man with anti-Semitic slurs before one of the boys pushed the victim. The suspects then fled on foot.
Police have released security footage of the young suspects, who remain at large. The New York Police Department’s Hate Crimes Task Force is currently investigating the incidents.
