Orthodox Man Beaten on Brooklyn Street

New York City police are investigating an attack on a Jewish man in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.

On Oct. 16, an Orthodox man was assaulted in front of a Jewish school in an incident being investigated as a possible bias attack.

Moshe Yehuda Feldman, 35, was hit in the back of the head in the late morning and was treated for head injuries, JP Updates reported. Police said the assailant was a Hispanic man and he fled the scene, according to the JP Updates.

“The vast majority of Jewish New Yorkers feel comfortable and safe in their respective communities,” Evan Bernstein, the New York regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, said in a news release. “However it is nevertheless disconcerting when such alarming events take place on our streets.”
