NEW YORK Police are looking for a pair of suspects after two female Jewish tourists from Israel were violently attacked and tasered at a subway stop in Brooklyn on Dec 5, 2019 at Apx 12:06 AM
Police say the victims exited their train at the F stop in Midwood just after midnight Thursday when a black male and a black female believed to be teenagers set upon them, yanking one of them to the floor of a staircase, grabbing her purse and punching and beating her for 5 minutes.
The first suspect is described as a female, Black, approximately 16-19 years of age, 5’3″, 140lbs; last seen wearing a dark coat, black sweat pants with “JUST DO IT” logo.
The second suspect is described as a male, Black, approximately 16-19 years of age, 6″0″, 140lbs; last seen wearing a black coat and black ADIDAS sweat pants.
At one point, another black male holding Shoprite bags walked right by and did nothing while walking up the stairs and past the attack in progress. The black male witness did absolutely nothing and didn’t even call 911.
Police say one of the victims tried to chase the two robbers, one of whom shoved her away.
The suspects then fled the scene.
The victims’ wallets and phones were stolen. The victims are now back in Israel.
A wedding hall is down the block from where this violent attack occurred. Everyone is asked to be more vigilant and if you see anything suspicious to call Shmira hotline at 718-871-4444
Crime continues to go up in NYC under Mayor de Blasio. Most New Yorkers do not feel safe. Homicides are up 9% in NYC. The ones that survive shootings do not get much attention. Hate crimes are up too. Over the last 12 months, there were 246 anti-Semitic crimes in the Big Apple, up from 144 over the previous 12 months. The number of anti-Semitic assaults jumped to 33 in 2018, up from 17 in 2017, and is on pace to rise again this year, with 19 in just the first half of the year. These attacks brutally target Orthodox Jews, often in broad daylight in Brooklyn neighborhoods.
Anyone with information in regard to the above incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) and Shmira at 718-871-4444
