New York Mayor Eric Adams vowed Sunday to crack down on a spate of antisemitic attacks in the city after a Jewish teen was attacked in Brooklyn on Friday night, marking the second consecutive weekend that visibly Jewish New Yorkers were assaulted during Shabbat.

A man jumped out of a van and punched the Jewish boy in the face while a second man filmed the attack from inside the van, the Anti-Defamation League said.

The attack occurred at around 10:30 p.m. in Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood.

Security footage showed a Jewish man and the suspect conversing on a sidewalk.

The suspect then follows the victim down a sidewalk, strikes him, then runs down the street and gets into a minivan.

The teen did not appear to be seriously hurt.

The ADL said the same suspects allegedly carried out another attempted assault in the same area.

The ADL offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

Mayor Adams said the police’s hate crimes unit was investigating the attack.

“Make no mistake, an attack on our Jewish community is an attack on every New Yorker. We will catch the perpetrators of this assault,” he said.

The attack was one of several antisemitic incidents in New York in recent days.
