Published

on

Americans have complained that they’ve seen an increasing amount of attacks by racists and white supremacists since President Donald Trump decided to make race a key tenant to his 2020 campaign. The Anti-Defamation League recorded a 55 percent increase in anti-Semitic assaults in New York alone over the past year.

Such was the case in a Brooklyn neighborhood where a 27-year-old Orthodox Jew was attacked by someone saying, “You Jews, Hitler should have finished you off,” before being sprayed with mace, reported Jewish News Syndicate.

The 39-year-old suspect was arrested over the weekend for the attack, which occurred as the victims were walking to Synagogue, just prior to the beginning of Shabbat. He also allegedly hit a 62-year-old man with a stick who saw the attack, NBC New York reported.

Dean was arrested by the NYPD on hate-crime assault charges and criminal possession of a weapon.

JNS explained that the Crown Heights neighborhood is home to the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, and has the highest concentration of Jewish residents in the city.
