Vandal Throws Rock at Jewish Man Outside NYC Synagogue in Drive-by Attack

Police released a photo of the vehicle in hopes of tracking down the suspect

A bigot in a graffiti-covered van chucked a rock at a Jewish man as he entered a Queens synagogue over the weekend, police said early Monday, 

The 23-year-old victim – wearing traditional religious garb – was walking into the Bais Yosef D’Ulem on 72nd Road near 141st Street in Kew Gardens Hills just after 9 a.m. Saturday when the hate crime suspect flung a small rock at him, striking his leg, cops said. 

The suspect did not say anything as they targeted the unsuspecting victim in the cowardly drive-by attack, police said. 

The tagged-up white Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van then continued heading west on 72nd Road toward 139th Street, cops said. 

No arrests have been made. Police released a photo of the vehicle in hopes of tracking down the hateful suspect. 

The victim was not hurt and refused medical attention on the scene. 

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident, the department confirmed.
