Jewish Man Harassed, Hat Stolen in Manhattan


A Jewish man had his hat stolen by three teenagers who demanded he say “Free Palestine” in order for it to be returned, NYPD said.

The incident occurred in Manhattan, at 43rd St and 12th Ave, last Thursday, June 17, at 5 p.m.

The 20-year-old-victim complied in hopes of getting his hat back, but the teenagers fled on bicycles with the hat still in their possession.

The Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.
