December 25, 2015 16:29

NEW YORK - A Hassidic Jewish man was reportedly assaulted in the lobby of a 5th Avenue office building in Manhattan this week. The victim said he was punched in the neck.

The website The Algemeiner, which originally reported the attack, quoted the victim, who wished to stay anonymous, saying:  “He punched me in the neck and there was security [there] and nobody interfered. They were just watching.”

“I got bruised and security didn’t even call 911, nothing. They’re just standing there and watching,” he added.

A witness, Yoni Davidov, confirmed to The Algemeiner that security guards and witnesses in the vicinity did nothing to stop the assault.
