NYC robberies fueled by anti-Semitism

(Crown Heights Info) Jews in Crown Heights have been terrorized by a spate of gunpoint robberies fueled by anti-Semitism, police sources said.

Most of the six attacks occurred during the span of a few hours on the evening of Jan. 2. In the first instance, at 6:20 p.m. a 15-year-old dressed in Hasidic-style clothing was approached on President Street near Albany Avenue by two black men who made anti-Jewish comments and demanded money.

The thugs didn't take anything, but struck again just a minute later, brandishing a gun at a 27-year-old Hasidic man, and again demanding money and making slurs.

Once again they came up empty handed.

Fourteen minutes later, the hooligans moved their reign of terror to Montgomery Street and Albany Avenue and forced their way into a 25-year-old Hasidic man's apartment just as he was entering it. They made bigoted remarks, waved their gun, grabbed some cash and left.

Their spree started up about two hours later, when they attacked another Hasidic man at St. John's Place and Utica Avenue. They pushed him, beat him and made slurs as they demanded cash, but took nothing.

Ten minutes later, they grabbed a 35-year-old man and rifled through his pockets, taking a cellphone and some cash.

Four days later, two men believed to be the same thugs tried to break into an apartment on Montgomery Street and Kingston Avenue.

The thugs tricked a woman who opened the door believing it was an older child knocking, sources said.

One of the intruders whipped out a gun and demanded cash, but the brave woman, who was holding a baby, slammed the door before they could enter.
