A group threw eggs at three Jewish men in two separate incidents in Borough Park, Brooklyn early on Saturday morning, and the NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force is looking at the attacks as possibly motivated by anti-Semitism.

First, police say a group of 4-6 men threw eggs at a 23-year-old Jewish man man at the intersection of Fort Hamilton Parkway and 49th Street at 1:55 a.m.. Several minutes later, the crew egged a 17-year-old and 14-year-old, both also Jewish, at the intersection of 13th Avenue and 46th Street. The teens recounted their attackers saying, "Fuckin' Jews" and threatening to "shoot and kill you Jews."

The culprits fled in a silver BMW, according to the NYPD, but the teens wrote down the license plate number and relayed it to the authorities.

No arrests have yet been made. The website JPUpdates.com obtained surveillance video from the Borough Park Shomrim, an Orthodox Jewish volunteer security group, showing part of one attack.


Police ask people with information about the incident to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at (800) 577-TIPS, visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text tips to 274637, then enter "TIP577".
