Several People Injured In Stabbing Attack In NY Rabbi’s Home During Hanukkah Celebration

2019-12-28 22:53:43

Several people were injured Saturday night when a man armed with a machete entered a Hasidic rabbi’s home north of New York City and began slashing at Jewish people attending a Hanukkah celebration, CBS News reported.

The man chased victims as they fled from the scene in Monsey in Rockland County, then fled in a car. 

Victims were rushed to local hospitals.

The motive for the attack was still unknown late Saturday. But there were at least six suspected anti-Semitic attacks in New York City in the week prior.

New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement that she was “deeply disturbed” by the attack. “There is zero tolerance for acts of hate of any kind, and we will continue to monitor this horrific situation. I stand with the Jewish community tonight and every night.”
