(US) Brooklyn egging incidents being treated as hate crimes

(JTA) — New York police are treating two separate egging incidents in a Brooklyn neighborhood as hate crimes.

A group of men reportedly threw eggs at a Jewish man, 23, at 1 a.m. Saturday in Borough Park. Several minutes later, the group egged two Jewish boys, ages 17 and 14. The assailants reportedly threatened to “shoot and kill you Jews.”

The teens recorded the number of the license plate of the silver BMW that the assailants fled in, according to the Gothamist.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident, according to reports.
