Police are searching for an antisemitic bigot who viciously attacked a Jewish man with a baseball bat in Staten Island on Monday. 

The 25-year-old victim told police that he was standing outside a residential building near 475 Grandview Ave, when the perp approached and began hurling anti-Jewish remarks at around 2:30 p.m. 

After his verbal tirade, the suspect then brandished a metal bat, and hit the victim in the head, according to police.

Paramedics rushed the injured man to Staten Island University Hospital, where he is expected to recover from his wounds. 

The suspect, meanwhile, fled the location on foot northbound towards Netherland Avenue. No arrests have yet been made, and the investigation remains ongoing. 

An NYPD spokesperson described the suspect as approximately 40 years old, standing around 5’11” tall. He was last seen wearing a blue jacket, green pants, black ski hat, and tan boots.
