BROOKLYN, N.Y. (PIX11) – Four minors have been arrested in what police are considering to be a string of knockout game attacks in Brooklyn.

Cops arrested a 14-year-old girl, and three other kids, ages 10 and 11, for the three assaults that took place in October and November.

The victims were three Jewish kids.

Cops say one was hit with a rock, one was punched and another was attacked in the face with a plastic bag.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Units investigated and say the assaults weren’t bias attacks, just violent children acting out.

The kids arrested face assault, endangerment and criminal mischief charges.
