The boy was walking along the sidewalk after crossing the intersection of Throop Avenue and Walton Street when a person raced up from behind him and pushed him, hard, sending him flying to the ground.

Volunteer medics from the Hatzolah emergency response medical service treated the boy for cuts and scrapes.

A separate source said the gang who attacked the above victim subsequently also attacked more Jewish boys in the neighborhood.
