Bronx attackers chant “ISIS” while beating man
Hate crimes detectives are investigating an attack on a 43-year-old man in the Bronx after a group attacked him and yelled: “ISIS, ISIS.”
Police say the man and a 9-year-old girl were walking on the street Friday evening when a group approached them, yelling, then punched him and kicked him after he fell.
The man was taken to a hospital and was treated and released. The little girl was uninjured. No arrests have been made. The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.
The New York Times reports the man had been wearing a shalwar kameez, a traditional South Asian outfit featuring a long tunic.
