NYPD Apprehends Individual Harassing Jews

After being trailed by Williamsburg Shomrim for an hour, the NYPD arrested a man who was blaring antisemitic remarks over a loudspeaker in a Jewish neighborhood. U.S. based Jewish advocacy group – StopAntisemitism – shared the image of the suspect on Twitter.

On Monday evening, a man began making antisemitic remarks over a loudspeaker in front of the Satmar Beis Medrash at 152 Rodney Street in Williamsburg, as well as in front of a nearby wedding hall.

NYPD was notified and Williamsburg Shomrim followed the suspect for an hour until the NYPD arrived and took him into custody. Witnesses reported to the police that they heard him making remarks including that “Hitler should have finished the job” and other such antisemitic comments.

The suspect is being questioned by the police of the 90th Precinct and was later interrogated by the Hate Crimes Unit of the NYPD.
