A member of the group also reportedly threatened the victim with a razor. The situation only calmed down after a local man intervened, causing the suspects to flee on foot in an unknown direction.
According to the NYPD, the suspects were also involved in another incident that same night, where they allegedly shoved a man after he confronted them about their antisemitic remarks. Reports added that no one was injured and no damage was reported in either of the incidents.

The group was described as comprised of two males and one female, all believed to be teenagers. The NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force was now lending assistance to the ongoing investigation.
Antisemitic incidents surged to historic levels in 2022, with a total of 3,697 incidents reported across the United States, an increase of 36% compared to 2021 – also a record-setting year – according to new data released on March by ADL (the Anti-Defamation League).
