Police are investigating a possible hate crime attack in Miami, Thursday morning.
Sources tell YWN that three Jewish men were having coffee inside the Dunkin Donuts on 41st Street and Sheridan Ave at around 5:30AM, when suddenly a man approached them. He began yelling at them, and punched one of the victims in the face. A second victim was shoved, and then punched in the chest. The third victim was able to fight the attacker off – before ripping off the mans hood.
The suspect fled the scene, but was later apprehended by police and was identified by the victims. He was arrested and taken into custody.
Hatzolah of Miami Beach was on the scene. Two victims were transported to the hospital by EMS for facial trauma. Both are in stable condition.
Additional information about the suspect and what he is being charged with will be published by YWN when that becomes available to us.
