Local residents came to the aid of an elderly Jewish man who was attacked in the Upper West Side this week, but not before the victim was spat on, as reported by the watchdog group Stop Antisemitism.

The incident occurred on West 86th and Amsterdam Avenue, when the suspect was seen first ripping off pictures of Israeli hostages, then proceeding to charge at an elderly man who was wearing a yarmulkeh.

The suspect is heard saying “free Palestine” as he walks away.
