Iced coffee thrown at Hasidic man in Sea View Staten Island 

A 23-year-old Hasidic man was hit with a cup of iced coffee thrown from a moving car Tuesday morning, police said. 

The victim said five men in a car stopped in front of him at approximately 10:25 a.m., and one of the men threw the coffee while the others yelled at him. The event occurred at the intersection of Rupert Avenue and Washington Avenue, police said. 

The website JP Updates reported that the event was being investigated as a hate crime, but the NYPD could not confirm that report.

The website also reported that the perpetrators were "possibly Arabic," and that it was "possible they yelled something in Arabic."

The NYPD did not confirm these reports either.
