See it: Jewish man struck in head by unknown projectile on Brooklyn street: NYPD


CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn — The NYPD on Thursday said the hate crimes unit was investigating after a Jewish man was struck with an unknown projectile on a Brooklyn street earlier in October.

Police said it happened around 10:30 p.m. back on Oct. 11 as the 23-year-old man was walking near the intersection of Montgomery Street and Albany Avenue, in the Crown Heights section.

The man, who was dressed in traditional Jewish clothing, was approached by three unidentified men in a dark-colored Hyundai Sonata with silver wheels, authorities said.
