ADL Offers Reward of Up to 5K Following Attack In Crown Heights

  • January 23, 2022

New York, NY, January 23, 2022 … ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the reported assault of a Jewish man Friday night, the eve of the Jewish Sabbath, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

According to the NYPD and other reports, the incident occurred on Carroll Street near Troy Avenue. The attacker allegedly approached two 21-year-old Yeshiva students, punching one of them in the face and leaving him with bruising and a nose injury that needed to be treated by medical staff. Following the attack, the perpetrator reportedly ran off towards Troy Avenue. The NYPD Hate Crimes Taskforce was informed of the incident late last night and has opened an investigation.

“These attacks on Jewish individuals appear to have become normalized, but we must not let this be the case – an attack on anyone based on their Jewish identity or any identity is abhorrent and should not be tolerated,” said Scott Richman, ADL New York/New Jersey Regional Director. “We hope that this reward offering will help us send that message to the community.” Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
