NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force Arrests Suspect for Attack on Two Jewish Men

(JNS) Detectives with the New York City Police Department’s Hate Crimes Task Force arrested Suleiman Othman, a 27-year-old man from Staten Island, for assaulting two Jewish men in Brooklyn late last month.

Othman is being charged with third-degree assault, along with aggravated harassment and hate-crime charges.

Blake Zavadsky and Ilan Kaganovic, both 21, were standing outside a store in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn on December 27 when two men started yelling at them and calling them “dirty Jews.”

According to police, Othman then struck Zavadsky in the face at least twice; Zavadsky was wearing a sweatshirt with the emblem of the Israel Defense Forces on it at the time.
