Once again, two Jewish men were viciously beaten up in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, on Wednesday.
A Jew brutally beaten last night in Brooklyn. Nothing stolen. Antisemitism is alive and well in NYC. Time for a hard look at who is doing it and its cause. This has been going on in NY long before Charlottesville or 2016 just ask anyone visibly Jewish. pic.twitter.com/z86dz32YBL

The brutal, anti-Semitic attack against the 51-year-old Jewish man was caught on CCTV, by the Crown Heights Shomrim organization. The attack happened on President Street at approximately 1 AM.
A second victim, identified as Mendel, a Yeshiva student from Australia, was talking to his father on the phone when the attackers came up behind him and punched him in the face, according to a report in the NY Post.
According to ABC news, two of the three attackers have been arrested, and have been identified as 18-year-old Navar Walters, 20-year-old Teshon Bannister. They have been charged with committing a hate-crime.
The older victim was taken to NYU Langone Hospital.
The ADL has offered a $5000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the various perpetrators who have been viciously attacking Jews in NY over the past few months.
