The NYPD was looking for three women wanted in a series of attacks on young Jewish children in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn.


In the first case, around 6 pm on Friday, the suspects were walking home on Skillman St. to a 12-year-old boy and a 3-year-old boy.

One of them slapped the little boy in the face. The big boy was not hurt.

Then on Sunday at around 5.30 pm, an 18-year-old woman and a 7-year-old girl were on their way to the shop on DeKalb Avenue, when they came face-to-face with three women.

The 18-year-old was approached from behind, grabbed by the jacket, and dragged to the ground. Three suspects took off and the 7-year-old was not attacked.

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the incidents.

Individuals are described as female teens, each wearing jeans and winter jackets.
