Report: Black Man With Machete Attacks Rabbi’s Home During Hanukkah Party

Posted on | December 29, 2019 | 1 Comment


The attack happened Saturday night in Monsey, N.Y., in the Rockland County suburbs, about 30 miles from New York City:

A frightening attack at a Hanukkah celebration in the home of a rabbi in a suburb north of New York City on Saturday night placed the entire New York region on edge and had public officials vowing to stop the violence.
The assault in Monsey, N.Y. — by a machete-wielding suspect who drove away but whom authorities believe was the man they apprehended later — continued a string of incidents in recent weeks that have included beatings of Jewish people on the streets of New York City and a massacre at a kosher grocery store in nearby Jersey City, N.J.
Five people were wounded at what public records say was the home of Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg, who leads a nearby synagogue. Soon after the attack, video posted on social media showed emergency responders frantically transporting victims on gurneys to waiting ambulances.
“I was praying for my life,” Aron Kohn, 65, who was inside the house at the time, told The New York Times. “He started attacking people right away as soon as he came in the door. We didn’t have time to react at all.”
Those wounded were taken to local hospitals for treatment, Ramapo police Chief Brad Weidel told The Associated Press. There was no immediate information on the severity of their injuries.

A suspect was reportedly arrested later in Harlem:

Shortly after the stabbings, authorities arrested a black male in a car with licenses plate that had been identified by witnesses at the scene.
“Our suspect is a tall, black male, about 6-foot-3 who was involved in this incident.” [Ramapo police chief Brad] Weidel confirmed that New York State police and NYPD intelligence are aiding in the investigation.

Just yesterday, leftists were freaking out because New York City’s mayor had announced police protection for the Jewish community there.
