A man has been arrested and charged with throwing bleach into the face of New York City Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg, who defends and publicizes claims of child sexual abuse in the Haredi community.
According to Police, one Meilech Schnitzler turned himself in on Wednesday, and was then arrested on the charges of felony assault, menacing, and the criminal possession of a weapon.
According to Fox News, a woman who answered the phone at Schnitzler’s home said he was not going to speak to anyone.
Rabbi Rosenberg told The New York Times that he knew the identity of the man who threw the corrosive liquid in his face when Rosenberg was walking in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn’s on Tuesday.
Police say the two were involved in an “ongoing dispute.”
Rabbi Rosenberg runs a website that publicizes child sexual abuse victims in the Satmar community.
