BROOKLYN — The NYPD has arrested a teen alleged to be part of a group that menaced two Jews in Midwood earlier this month, one of whom was punched for refusing to say “Free Palestine.”

On May 10, two 18-year-old Jewish men were walking down Avenue M, when they realized they were being followed by a group of Arab teens. The teens demanded that the Jews say ‘Free Palestine.’ When they refused, one teen punched one of the Jews, who suffered a bloodied eye.

Police on Friday arrested a teen suspected of being one of the group — but not the one who punched the Jew. His name and details of charges were not immediately released.
