City police are seeking a Jewish man for questioning in an alleged bias attack on a black man in Crown Heights.
Yitzhak Shuchat, 25, is “a person of interest,” in the April 14 beating that left the victim hospitalized in stable condition, the NYPD said in an alert Friday morning asking the public’s help locating Shuchat.
Police want to talk to Shuchat about the incident, which took place around 6:30 p.m. on Carroll Street between Kingston and Albany.
A 20-year-old black man told the police that while he was walking on Carroll Street “a black SUV pulled up along side him and a [white man] asked ‘What are you looking at!’ The victim responded ‘What are you looking at!’ The victim reported that several [white men] exited the vehicle and he was struck with a wooden object and Maced,” a city police report said.
Anyone with information on the man’s whereabouts is urged to make a confidential call to CrimeStoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
