A pregnant Jewish woman was reportedly attacked on November 3 in Brooklyn, NY.
A spokesperson for the New York Police Department (NYPD) told the Journal that the woman, 33, had a drink thrown in her face in Eastern Parkway by an unidentified male; the suspect also hurled a “derogatory comment” at her. The woman then fled. The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the matter.
According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) New York / New Jersey, the man also attempted to hit the woman. They are offering a $10,000 reward for anyone with information about the incident.
“We are appalled and outraged by the vileness of this attack,” ADL New York / New Jersey Regional Director Scott Richman said in a statement. “ADL is offering this award to send the unmistakable message that hate-motivated violence and harassment is unacceptable. No one should be threatened by attack while going about their daily life.”
