29 Dec 2015

From the JTA:
Less than 24 hours after a 60-year-old Jewish man was beaten and robbed there, a 17-year-old Orthodox boy was attacked in a heavily Jewish Brooklyn neighborhood.

The boy was on a residential street of Midwood and walking home from yeshiva at approximately 6:30 p.m. Monday when an African-American man attacked him, Yeshiva World News reported on Tuesday.

The victim, who had been listening to music on earphones, was punched in the face and knocked into the street. The side of his face was bruised, and he is in stable condition, according to YWN.
