Williamsburg: Frum Man Beaten By Thugs On Friday Night
(Saturday, November 12th, 2011)
A Frum man was R”L severely beaten and left unconscious with multiple fractures on Ross Street in Williamsburg, Friday morning. He was taken to the hospital by Williamsburg Hatzolah.
This terrible crime took place just a week after swastikas were found in the same Brooklyn neighborhood and the night after the anti-Semitic vandalism in Midwood.
The NYPD and Williamsburg Shomrim are trying to find video footage from security cameras in the area. There may have been more than one person involved in the attack.
Councilman Stephen Levin, Assemblyman Vito Lopez and Assemblyman Joseph Lentol will join with Rabbi David Niederman, Executive Director of the United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg, and other community leaders at a press conference on Sunday morning. They will call for increased police presence in Williamsburg to ensure that the neighborhood is once again a safe haven for all residents.
If you have any information which can assist in the investigation, please call Williamsburg Shomrim at 718-237-0202.
