Jewish Grandmother Attacked in ‘knockout Game’

Her attacker is still at large.
knockout Game

Mira Harpazi, 72, left her home in Starrett City on Monday, to visit a Jewish community center in Canarsie, Brooklyn, but on her way she was slugged in the back of the head by a young thug in what cops suspect is yet another instance of the violent “knockout game,” the NY Post reports.

The attacker, in his late teens or early 20s, went after Harpazi on the corner of Pennsylvania and Flatlands avenues. He didn’t say a word or try to rob his victim, just hit her, according to police. Harpazi, a grandmother, was treated at Brookdale Hospital and released.

Her attacker is still at large.

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is looking into whether the attack was a case of the “knockout game.”

Barbara Fulton, 56, Harpazi’s neighbor, told the Post: “Miriam is all the over place, she’s very independent, she’s a tough woman.”

Meanwhile, the Post reported that police on Monday have arrested a 13-year-old and charged him with assault and aggravated harassment as a juvenile for the Nov. 6 “knockout game” attack on a 12-year-old boy.

Since Oct. 11, at least eight suspected “knockout” attacks have been reported in the Crown Heights, Midwood and Borough Park sections of Brooklyn.

  1. ¡Grrrrr cowards, I hope one day they try to do the same to an IDF element, surely knockouts would be quite different, and those cowards would receive a lesson!.

  2. Please advise me on what I should do. In utah, they are matching a anonymous donor Utah Islamic community up to &100,000 for the relief fund, in the Philippines. I commented it was wrong to do this because muslims are evil. Her response is not all Muslims are bad. HELP!? Thank you.

  3. cowards too scared they gotta do it without the person seeing them..

  6. Anonymous says:

    I have watched several videos and news clips recently and I'm enraged at this atrocity. These blacks are knocking out anyone other than black irrespective of age. These are the Canaanites can we expect any better from them?

  7. Liberal American Jews should stop to help and care about the so-called minorities who harm Jews and want to destroy Western civilization ! The politically correctness is killing Western countries ! You should FIGHT BACK as the ''43 Group'' self defence Jewish organization did in Great-Britain after the WW2 ! Your enemies are my enemies ! I love Jewishpress.com ! Frederic. A brother from Israel.

  10. Roberta Ashenfarb says:

    Yeah….Knock out game….let's see WHO'S DOING THIS???? WHAT TYPE OF PEOPLE….why doesn't the police give the DESCRIPTION of the person/people doing this????? WHAT ARE THEY? WHITE….PINK…PURPLE….BLACK…LATINO…?????
    How do we know who to look for if we're not given proper information??
    Think that's BIAS….this is a hate crime….ABSOLUTELY…BY "CERTAIN" people living in the neighborhood targeting Jewish people or other low life "outsiders"……..I'll give you TWO GUESSES THE TYPE OF PEOPLE DOING THIS….

  11. A shame,horrifying,poor woman!

    A baseball bats in self defense will help get the message across not to mess with jews!

  13. Takes a punk to hit an old women in the
    Back of the head and then run away…
    Let them try it to a grown man.
    And see what the story will tell..
    Oh my baby was a good boy and show his public school graduation picture….

  14. Lynn Alfone says:

    their cowards….when ur not lookin they do it…pick on someone ur own size and not the elderly

  15. Yechiel Baum says:

    There are cameras and time for all Jewish grandchildren to seek the guy out and in front of him, kill his grandmother and mother and then castrate him so no more black hoodlooms from those genes!

  16. where is the jdl you ask? probably busy defending the attacker

  17. What must be done is to immediately stop referring to these vicious hate crimes as a "game". This is NOT a "Game". It is an atrocious and intolerable criminal activity.

  18. Black delinquents are responsible for their OWN behavior. The Grandmother and Mother did not attack the victims. These Black degenerates are now being referred to as the "Sons of Obama".

  19. Self defense is always just.

  20. There were 27 incidents already. Attackers were all Black. BTW, Obama himself is anti-Semitic. Obama is a Muslim Supremacist who has usurped the Presidency of the United States during a time of war. Obama does NOT care about America or Israel. Beware of Obama's agenda. It includes "Dar-el-Salam".

  21. Al Sharpton is a hypocrite.

  22. Robbie Goldstein says:

    ALL Jews must study martial arts/ self defense. In Karate, you learn to be aware of your surroundings and other people. You learn to know someone's intention from 20 feet away. And, you know how to stop an attack and make them think twice about ever doing it again.
