Teens Charged With Pelting Jews With Eggs

Five people were arrested in New Jersey for pelting Orthodox Jewish teens with eggs.

Those arrested, three male adults and two juvenile boys, were charged with bias intimidation and harassment, the Asbury Park Press reported.

The incident occurred late last week as the two teens, ages 15 and 17, were walking. The five assailants attacked the teens from a Jeep.

“You better move on you Jew boys,” they reportedly said, according to the Asbury Park Press. The driver admitted to police that they were responsible for the attack.
