NYC cab driver shouting ‘Allah’ brutally beats man on way to synagogue
Police say a livery driver beat a 62-year-old man as he walked to synagogue on Sunday morning in Brooklyn.
Physically and emotionally scarred, Lipa Schwartz described the frightening moment he was attacked in broad daylight in the middle of the street in Borough Park.
“All of a sudden ‘boom!’ I tried to protect myself, run away. I fell. He come again on me,” said Schwartz.
Schwartz was on his way to service, which he attends every day, when he said the driver jumped out of his cab and started attacking him. The savage beating happened on 13th Ave by 46th Street. The victim’s holy items were scattered on the ground.
