The attacker fled the scene and is at large. According to Brikman, he and the attacker crossed paths on Empire Blvd., when he suddenly felt a sharp pain in his back and realized he had been stabbed in his upper right back.

Brikman had been married only a week ago. He was taken by Hatzolah to Kings County Hospital in stable condition.

According to NYPD chief of detectives Robert Boyce, this was probably a hate crime, since “No words were [exchanged] prior to the argument. [Brikman] is dressed in Hassidic garb. Right now we are looking at this as a possible hate crime because he is dressed in that fashion.”

Yehuda Brikman is the son of Chabad Rabbi Chaim Brikman of Seagate, Brooklyn.

  1. Because, my dear Ms. Kimball, they don't want to know, or their leadership doesn't want them to know, or, more likely, both. Hate knows no boundaries and can be used by anyone with an agenda to fulfill.
    Baruch, Hashem. But … I do hope the "ignoramus" is caught, prosecuted, and locked up for the rest of his life … + FIVE.

  3. What color was the assilant? It looks like he's a Negro. I know many Caucasian African-Americans. How do you know this was an American citizen? Just because someone is a Negro doesn't mean they're American. Are any British Negroes Americans?
    Some people say all people originated in Africa. If so, shouldn't we all call ourselves Africans?
