The New York Police Department is investigating the assault of a Hasidic man in Brooklyn as a possible hate crime.
Police said the 19-year-old victim was walking down the street in Crown Heights last Sunday night when he was approached by a group of eight men, five of whom were caught by a surveillance camera.
Police said one of the men punched the victim in the face and the group fled.
The suspects are described as in their late teens and early twenties.
Residents said the alleged assault is the latest in a series of several anti-Semitic incidents in the area.
