A Jewish man and two Jewish teenagers were pelted with eggs on Friday night and early Saturday—and now the cops are probing the incidents as a hate crime.
According to JP Updates, "[T]he first incident occurred at 1:55 a.m. when a 23-year-old man walking at Fort Hamilton Parkway and 49th street was approached by a group of 4-6 males who proceeded to throw eggs at him. The second incident happened a few minutes later when two teens, aged 17 and 14, were walking at the intersection of 13th Avenue and 46th Street and a group of 4-6 males threw eggs at the boys and then stated, 'F…n Jews' and then also threatened 'we will shoot and kill you Jews'. The group then fled the scene in a Silver BMW."
The teens apparently got the license plate number of the car.
The 17-year-old told WLNY, "I never had it in my life, first time, and I never thought that would happen."
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
