Bigoted full grown punks of Indian origin are now getting into da vicious ‘game’.
(NY Daily News) –The suspect in the brazen punching of a Jewish man in Brooklyn callously boasted he could “knock out” his victim — but his lawyer claimed Saturday that the alleged attack has nothing to do with the brutal game that has the city on edge.
Amrit Marajh, 28, had just left a bar on McDonald Ave. on Friday [Nov. 22, 2013] with four friends and was talking about boxing when the knockout game came up, police sources said.
“You can’t do that,” one member of the group said as they came upon Shmuel Perl, 24, according to a source.
Marajh allegedly said, “Yes I can, I’ll do it to this guy right now!” before punching Perl in the face, leaving him bruised.
“This had nothing to do with the knockout game,” said his attorney, James Kirshner.
A 24-year-old Jewish man was pummeled in Borough Park on Friday and cops are trying to figure out if it was a hate crime, another vile example of the “knockout game” — or both.
Police charged Amrit Marajh, 28, with punching Shmuel Perl around 2:45 a.m. on 18th Ave.
Marajh faces charges of third-degree assault, assault as a hate crime and aggravated harassment as a hate crime. Three other men allegedly with Marajh at the time of the attack were taken into custody but released, police said. He was awaiting arraignment Saturday afternoon.
Perl was wearing a yarmulke. At least one of the men in the group yelled an anti-Semitic slur, cops said.
“I was able to hear them speaking loudly about this knockout game,” Perl said in a YouTube interview with the Orthodox magazine Dee Voch. “The group surrounded me. As I tried to get away, one stepped toward me and with a closed fist hit me in the face.”
As he stumbled away from the suspect, he and his pals yucked it up, Perl said.[...]
NBC New York gives a racial description of the victim but not of the perp:
The 24-year-old victim, who is white and Jewish, said he overheard the people who attacked him talking about the knockout game before they punched him in the face on 18th Avenue in Boro Park.
Marajh Amrit, 28, has been charged with two counts of a hate crime and third-degree assault, police said.
Insight into the racial identities of knockout victims and the usual suspects from the Epoch Times:
A number of assaults in Brooklyn, New Jersey and Washington, D.C., have drawn attention in recent weeks that authorities say may be inspired by the violent game. The object is to target unsuspecting pedestrians with the intention of knocking them out with one punch.
Police have said some of the attacks are being investigated as hate crimes; victims tend to be white or Jewish, and in New York City, the suspects have all been black.
Information on an attorney for Amrit was not immediately available.
The Times of India reports that the attacker Amrit Marjh is of Indian descent:
NEW YORK: A 28-year-old Indian-origin man has been arrested in the US on hate crime charges after he allegedly assaulted a Jewish man as part of so-called “knock-out attacks.”
