A Jewish woman in her 40s was choked on a New York City subway station last week, according to a report by the New York Post.

According to the report, a man approached the woman, put his hands around her neck and choked her while making antisemitic remarks.

The woman was taken to Mt. Sinai hospital for her injuries, and NYPD's Hate Crimes Unit is investigating the attack.

Previous antisemitic attacks in New York City

This is another attack in a series of antisemitic attacks in New York. Two weeks ago, a Jewish man was punched on the subway by a man who claimed the victim was filming him doing a dance flip. The suspect also told the Jewish man that he would shoot him if he had a gun.

At the end of July, four suspects were arrested on suspicion of carrying out multiple hate crimes in the Jewish Orthodox neighborhood of Monsey, New York.

Earlier in the month, the US Department of Justice charged an anti-Israel activist for assaulting a Jewish man at an anti-Israel rally in New York City because the Jewish man was wearing an Israeli flag.
