South Florida Police Apprehend Assailant After Physically and Verbally Attacking a Jewish Man

PBSO deputies responded to a robbery that had occurred at the Walmart located at 22100 South State Road 7, Boca Raton. The suspect, Daniel Scanlan, hit a male victim from behind, removed his black yarmulke (Orthodox Jewish skullcap), and called him a “Dirty Jew Kike.” The suspect then spat in it, threw it to the ground, and once again struck the victim. 

A female patron attempted to intervene, and the suspect snatched her cell phone from her hands, called her a “C-word,” and threw her to the ground, causing a minor laceration to her right elbow. As the female victim was attempting to retrieve her phone, the suspect purposely threw it to the ground. The suspect then fled to a White Kia vehicle and drove away.   

NGO StopAntisemitism quickly shared the news of the antisemitic incident and arrest of Daniel Scanian on Twitter.

On May 1, 2023, PBSO detectives apprehended Daniel Scanlan. Scanlan was transported to the PBC Jail to face charges, including robbery and battery. A hate crime enhancement is possible, according to police. He remains held in the Palm Beach County Jail.
