The moment a Jew was punched by someone walking past him in the street in a vicious, unprovoked attack has been caught on camera.
Police released surveillance camera footage from Brooklyn, New York, showing a lone man in a hooded jacket walking past a group of men – and one of the group lashing out at him.
The attack is one of several on Jews in the area that have been terrifying the community.
A local rabbi speculated that gangs are playing a disturbing game of ‘knock out the Jew’.
Another told CBS New York that his 12-year-old son was hit with huge force in the head by a teenager. He was dressed in traditional Jewish clothing at the time.
He said: ‘One, full strength with his fist, whacked him, punched him, on the side of the face, full force.’
