TWO WOMEN ARRESTED OVER ALLEGED KNOCKOUT ATTACK ON 79-YEAR-OLD ORTHODOX JEW
The Daily News reported that Raven Small, 20, and Tatyana Bone, 18, were arrested as suspects shortly after the incident that occurred on Sunday at 1:10 a.m. in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
An epidemic of these kinds of senseless attacks on unsuspecting victims have surfaced in cities across the nation. Many of the victims of the so called “knockout game” have been seriously injured and in some cases have suffered fatalities.
Police at the scene said that the motive for the attack was unclear and that Lebovits was taken to NYU Langone Medical Center by the Jewish first responder group Hatzolah. According to the Jewish political news website JP-UPDATES, Lebovits is a well-known member of the local Jewish community and was walking on Taylor Street when he was allegedly struck by the two women.
