Play time is over!
A cross-dresser known for his guest appearances on “The Howard Stern Show” was beaten up in a hate crime, police sources said Sunday.
Elliot Offen, known to Stern fans as “Elegant Elliot,” was outside a Brooklyn synagogue on Eastern Parkway at around 11 p.m. Saturday when a young Hasidic man began chasing him, the sources said.
“You homo, I’m going to cut off your schmeckle!” Nehoray Shabbot, 20, allegedly shouted, using a Yiddish profanity for penis, according to police sources.
Police charged Shabbot on Saturday night with assault as a hate crime and aggravated assault as a hate crime.
The charges include allegations from Sept. 12 that Shabbot punched and kicked Offen, calling him homophobic names in Yiddish, outside Chabad Lubavitch headquarters on Eastern Parkway, police said.
