An Orthodox Jewish teenager was attacked in a heavily Jewish New York City neighborhood less than 24 hours after a 60-year-old Jewish man was beaten and robbed there.

The boy, 17, was punched in the face and knocked into the street in the Midwood section of Brooklyn while walking home from his yeshiva at approximately 6:30 p.m. Monday, Yeshiva World News reported Tuesday. The side of his face was bruised and he is in stable condition, according to the website.

The assailant was an African-American, the website reported. Early Monday morning, the 60-year-old man was attacked on a residential block in the same neighborhood. Last week, a kippah-wearing student was assaulted at Medgar Evers College in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. The alleged assailant was African-American.

“I’m just in complete shock over the recent spate of violence and brutality,” New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind told Yeshiva World News.

Hikind, who visited the victim on Tuesday afternoon, urged the local Jewish community to be on high alert.

“We as a community need to be aware and alert of our surroundings,” he said.
