NYC Police earlier this week arrested two young males in connection to several brutal attacks on Jewish men in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The two, DeAndre Daigle, 19, and Michael Bellevue, 20, were charged with robbery and assault.
Police are still looking for two other suspects. Police believe the four were behind five separate attacks between 4:30 and 5:50 AM Monday. Four of the attacks were against Hasidic men on their way to shul. The victims were punched and their pockets were rummaged through.
On Monday, police released a video showing four young males walking into a building lobby in Williamsburg, at about the time of the robberies.
For the time being, Daigle and Bellevue are not being charged with a hate crime, but this charge could be added as the investigation progresses.
