CBS2 Exclusive: Man Vows To Move Forward After Suspected Anti-Semitic Attack In Brooklyn Park

Source: CBS New York

A 63-year-old man was attacked with a paving stone while exercising in a park.

The suspect allegedly yelled an anti-Semitic slur before blindsiding the victim.
Abraham Gopin was jogging near the ballfields inside Lincoln Terrace Park around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday when he was attacked.

“There was a battlefield… When he saw me, he jumped towards me… Shutting rocks with full force towards my head,” he told CBS2’s Jenna DeAngelis. “Then, he jumped on me and start to fight with me, trying to knock me in the face – probably, I would say, 20, 25, 30 times with his fists, and I was protecting myself.”

Gopin’s family said a stranger approached him in the park, yelled a slur and punched him in the face. The suspect then hit the 63-year-old over the head with a paving stone, breaking his nose and knocking out his teeth.

“It was a hate… he said Jew, Jew. He said something in that direction,” he said. “He was for certain looking to kill. No doubt about it.”
