Two men were arrested on January 30 for allegedly assaulting a Jewish man in the Crown Heights area of Brooklyn that same morning.

Video footage shows three men assaulting a 51-year-old Jewish man unprovoked; nothing was stolen from the Jewish man:

According to the Algemeiner, the two men arrested have been identified as Navar Walters, 18, and Teshon Bannister, 20; both are being charged with a hate crime. The third man in the video is still at large. The Jewish man was hospitalized for minor injuries.

The January 30 assault in Crown Heights comes after a Jewish man was punched in the chest on January 16 and a 19-year-old Jewish man was punched and thrown to the ground on January 12.

Eli Cohen, executive director of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council, told News 12 that Crown Heights needs “another level of patrolling” in light of the recent attacks.
