At around 12:35 last night a Bochur on his way home from a wedding was attacked by a black male on Crown between Brooklyn and New York. The Bochur, who was intoxicated, and talking on his phone when according to two witnesses, he was attacked by a ‘large built’ black male and after being knocked to the ground had his Cell Phone taken.
One witness stated that he clearly saw the knife while the other said he didn’t see it. The Bochur sustained minor injuries which consisted of scrapes and bruises to his knees was taken by Hatzalah to Kings County Hospital, against the will of the responding police officers.
Shomrim were called to this incident, but given the victims state of mind it was hard to determine what had happened, and after the witnesses approached it was too late to attempt and locate the assailant.
The responding police officer was adamant as to the fact that the bruises the Bochur sustained were the end result of being hit by a car! And the officer completely ignored the knife, stating it was ‘probably not involved’.
