Last October, Lipa Schwartz, an American ultra-Orthodox Jew, was also attacked in Brooklyn while walking to the synagogue.


The driver, who appeared Middle Eastern, got out and chased Schwartz until catching up with him and assaulting the victim.


Schwartz tried to defend himself and was able to escape, but was pursued by his attacker.


The NYPD was called to the scene and arrested the assailant , 37-year-old Afzal Farrukh from Staten Island, who was charged with assault, hate crime and harassment.
