2 Busted in Brooklyn Egg Attack on Orthodox Teen

The New York Police Department has made two arrests in an egg-throwing attack in Brooklyn targeting an Orthodox Jewish teenager.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force has the suspects, both adolescents, in custody, Yeshiva World News reported Thursday. They reportedly are white males.

The attack, captured on surveillance video, took place at 2 a.m. Saturday in the Borough Park section. The victim, a 17-year-old boy, according to WCBS TV in NewYork, told WLNY TV that the attackers yelled, “You Jewish guys we’ll shoot you,” before fleeing in a silver BMW.

A call from JTA to the NYPD seeking confirmation was not immediately returned.

According to Yeshiva World News, a similar incident happened soon after at another location in Borough Park, with eggs thrown and anti-Semitic threats made.
