Antisemitic Attack: Man Assaulted with Baseball Bat in Staten Island

A disturbing incident unfolded on a Staten Island street this week when a man was brutally assaulted with a baseball bat in what appears to be an antisemitic attack. The incident occurred on Monday around 2:30 p.m. on Grandview Avenue in Mariners Harbor, according to the New York Police Department (NYPD).

The victim, a 25-year-old man, was confronted by an unknown assailant who proceeded to hurl derogatory antisemitic slurs at him. The attacker then struck the victim on the head with a metal baseball bat, causing a laceration to the back of his head. The injured individual was promptly transported to Staten Island University Hospital by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) for medical treatment.

The suspect, described as a 40-year-old male approximately 5 foot 11 inches tall, fled the scene heading north on Grandview Avenue towards Netherland Avenue. The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force has taken charge of the investigation into this disturbing incident.

In an effort to apprehend the perpetrator, the NYPD has released surveillance images of the wanted suspect. The images depict the individual brandishing a baseball bat while wearing a blue jacket over a pinkish-red hoodie, green pants, a black ski hat, and tan boots.

Authorities are urging anyone with information regarding the incident or the identity of the suspect to come forward and assist in the ongoing investigation. The NYPD remains committed to addressing hate crimes and ensuring the safety and well-being of all residents.
