A pair of teens shouted anti-Semitic slurs at a 38-year-old Jewish woman before chucking a rock through the back window of her minivan in Brooklyn, police said Wednesday.
Cops released video surveillance images of one of the two teens involved in the 4:50 p.m. Tuesday clash on Nostrand Ave. and Ave. J in Midwood.
The woman, who was wearing an Orthodox head covering, told police that she was driving her children down Nostrand Ave. when the two teens started yelling out a slew of obscenities with the word "Jew" at the end, cops said. The woman admitted that she didn't hear all the words.
One of the teens — described as black, about 14, 5-foot-6 and 130 pounds with short black hair — hurled a rock at the minivan, which punched a hole through the rear driver's side window, cops said. The rock thrower was wearing blue jeans, a blue T-shirt and black sneakers.
The NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the attack, cops said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
In an unrelated case, the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is also investigating several threats made to the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous in Chelsea.
A 31-year-old worker at the Foundation said that someone called the foundation three times claiming he was going to kill her and "burn Jews," police sources said. The caller also said he planned to gas Jews.
"Can I order a heil Hitler?" the unhinged caller asked.
Cops are trying to track down the caller, who may be in Florida, officials said.
