From the JTA:

An Orthodox man was stabbed on a sidewalk in the Brooklyn neighborhood that is home to the Chabad-Lubavitch movement’s world headquarters.

Yehuda Lib Brikman, 25, who according to JPUpdates is newly married, was stabbed Wednesday morning in the upper back on a residential street in Crown Heights. He was rushed to Kings County Hospital in serious but stable condition shortly before noon.

The alleged assailant was an African-American man, according to JP Updates. Police are investigating the incident — it is not clear whether or not they are looking it as a hate crime. The victim did not know the assailant and the attack was unprovoked, police said.
