Assailant 28-year-old Steven Jorge was said to have yelled an anti-Semitic comment before punching the 65-year-old man Monday. NYC police department received a call Monday morning after the victim fell to the ground, treated at the scene. Jorge struck the victim in the face, causing him to fall, then continued to kick him while he was on the ground, the victim told police.

Andrew Cuomo also condemned the attacks.
