Video: Hasidic man hit in head with chair in BrooklynPosted: Updated:
Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects connected to two Christmas Eve assaults of Hasidic Jewish men in Brooklyn.
The NYPD released a video of one of the attacks which shows a group of men approaching the 23-year-old victim and then one of them hits the victim in the head with a chair while another punches him in the face.
About a half hour earlier, police say a group of men also approached a 56-year-old man from behind and punched him in the back of the head before knocking him to the ground.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers hotline 1-800-577-TIPS.
