Anti-Semitic attacks happened in the Diamond District, Times Square, and a restaurant on May 20.
The police cleared an “unlawful assembly of free palestine [sic] agitators at a pro Israel demonstration in Times Square.”
Then the Free Palestine rioters broke through the barriers to taunt the pro-Israel demonstrators.
They proceeded to throw a firework at the Israel crowd. A brawl eventually broke out.
Police already arrested a few people who allegedly assaulted a Jewish man:
Faisal Elezzi and several others allegedly surrounded Joseph Borgen on Broadway on May 20, then punched, kicked and pepper sprayed him, police said. Borgen was also hit with crutches.
“I was holding my head bracing, trying to make it out alive,” Borgen, 29, said. “My whole face was on fire, more pain than anything else.”
Borgen thought he was going to die.
Elezzi was charged with assault as a hate crime, menacing as a hate crime and aggravated harassment as a hate crime. Police previously arrested Waseem Awawdeh on charges of assault as a hate crime, gang assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.
