Brooklyn, NY - Attempted Rape of Williamsburg Hitchhiker

Brooklyn, NY - Attempted Rape of Williamsburg Hitchhiker
Community Alert! ונשמרתם מאד לנפשתכם

Brooklyn, NY - Community leaders have approached VIN News with an urgent request to post the following chilling story as a vital warning to our fellow Yidden. Yesterday at 11 AM, a young Williamsburg woman accepted a ride to Boro Park from an apparently heimish man, dressed in Chasidic garb – hat, tzites, beard, and Yiddish-speaking. Several minutes into the ride, he stopped the car, pulled out a knife, and attempted to rape his vulnerable passenger. Thankfully, the victim didn’t lose her senses, and was brave enough to struggle against her attacker. She escaped from the car in time, and 911 emergency personnel arrived at the scene moments after.

While we at VIN take great care to respect the privacy of individuals, we report this personal, harrowing episode as a burning lesson to all. Under no circumstances, in any situation, should one accept a hitch from a stranger! In today’s dangerous world, we cannot jeopardize our safety simply because we need to get from Point A to Point B. Unfortunately, we can’t trust an individual because of his appearance; looks are deceiving. Please protect yourself and your family, and do not place yourselves in the risk and grave danger of hitchhiking.

If anyone has seen or has any information in regards to this investigation, please contact the Williamsburg Shomrim Patrol at 718-237-0202.

A frum man in Williamsburg once accepted a ride while hitchhiking. He was in a daze and did not notice before getting in the car that the driver was Hispanic. The hitchhiker was beaten until unconscious and thrown to the side of the highway.

There are known hitchhiking points at the ends of WB & Boro Park where frum people try hitching rides.

At the last siyum haShas in the Jacob Javits Center, a "frum" pervert flashed a young lady near the restrooms. State Police and Hatzola spent the rest of the evening looking for him without luck.

No person should be raped from any community and no person should flash any part of the body this is against the law.

People in the country must also be careful about accepting rides from strangers.
