Three young men have been charged with a hate crime after they allegedly harassed and assaulted Jewish teenagers with a baseball bat and yelled antisemitic slurs outside a synagogue.
The New York Police Department (NYPD) arrested Danial Shaukat, 20, on Tuesday—and then Haider Anjam, 20, and Ashan Azad, 19—in connection with the alleged hate crimes and assaults, which took place last Saturday. The Brooklyn natives were charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime, NBC News reported. While Shaukat has been arraigned in court, the other two have not yet gone before a judge.
On Saturday, the three men allegedly pulled up in their car outside the Agudath Israel of Sixteenth Avenue synagogue in Brooklyn's Borough Park neighborhood. They then reportedly proceeded to yell anti-Jewish remarks at a group of four men gathered outside the worship center, before the men quickly locked themselves inside.
