Man arrested for ripping wigs off Orthodox Jewish women in Los Angeles Area

?quality=90&strip=all&w=618&h=410&crop=1

In the first incident, an 80-year-old woman was walking on Bellaire Avenue and Burbank Boulevard in North Hollywood when she noticed a man following her, the Los Angeles Police Department said. When she reached Chandler Boulevard, the stranger approached her, snatched the wig off her head, smiled and handed it back to her before walking away without saying a word, cops said.

Later that day, a 36-year-old woman was walking on Chandler Boulevard at Bellaire Avenue when the same man attempted to pull her wig off, according to police.

The anti-Semitic bully laid low until Tuesday — when he approached a 58-year-old woman loading music equipment into her car at Laurel Canyon and Burbank Boulevard before pulling her wig off her head.

“Oh, I’m sorry,” he scoffed before tossing the wig on the ground and walking away, according to police.

All three victims are part of the Orthodox Jewish community living in the neighborhood, cops said.

“The suspect appears to have battered the women and targeted their wigs because of their religious beliefs,” police said in a statement.

The man, who was not immediately identified, was taken into custody Wednesday on suspicion of battery, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“This is something for a Jewish woman which is so personal,” Rabbi Nachman Abend told CBS Los Angeles. “This wig or this hair covering is something to them which is so important. To rip that off somebody’s head is crossing all lines and I’m really glad the LAPD considered this a hate crime.”

Orthodox Jewish women typically wear wigs — known as sheitels in Yiddish — after getting married as a symbol of modesty. The wigs are also considered a blessing.

5. Yes, they are.

All kinds of them, from the obvious hate-mongers like this asshole to the ones who try to tell us what is and isn't anti-Semitism, ignore obvious anti-Semitism, and tell us how it is less important than other forms of bigotry, while proclaiming themselves "allies."

We probably should be thankful he didn't physically injure or kill them.

8. Sadly, again, you are correct.

They simply close their eyes, put their fingers in their ears, and ignore what is happening because, well, it's just Jews.

3. It's so pathetic how these cowards always target women.

Not that I think it would be ok if they attacked the men, but they think they are so brave when their only victims are women who can't or won't fight back for fear of bodily harm. Whether it's ripping wigs off Jewish women or headscarves off of Muslim women, their actions are so weak and cowardly.

10. He'll move on to ripping hijabs off the heads of Muslim women. Such a "big, powerful man"...

He needs to be mocked endlessly for his pathetic need to abuse women, as much as for his dangerous bigotry. Does he stalk women down darkened sidewalks just to see if they'll cross the street in fear?

What a little prick.
