BROADWAY TRIANGLE, Brooklyn (PIX11) — A man dressed in traditional Hasidic attire was attacked by a group of six people on a street in Brooklyn Friday night, according to police.

Around 7:55 p.m., the 21-year-old victim was walking along Gerry Street near Harrison Avenue when the suspects approached him before punching and kicking him to the ground in an unprovoked attack, authorities said. The group fled the scene, leaving the victim suffering minor injuries to his mouth. He was treated by EMS.

“I’m outraged by this act of violence against a Jewish New Yorker,” Gov. Kathy Hochul tweeted. “An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.  I am directing the @nyspolice Hate Crimes Task Force to assist the investigation in any way possible.”

An investigation by the NYPD Hate Crime Task Force was ongoing. Police asked for help with identifying and finding the suspects.
