The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is investigating a disturbing incident which occured on Friday night.
YWN spoke to one of the victims who says that at around 9:30PM on Friday night, he and another person were walking on Le Brea Blvd and Oakwood – in front of the Bais Yehuda Shul, when a vehicle drove past screaming anti-Semitic slurs at them.
The victim says the vehicle made an abrupt U-Turn and began hurling anti-semitic slurs before attempting to run over the group of identifiable Orthodox Jews. The vehicle sped off and was involved in a car accident at the intersection of Highland and Oakwood.
The victim tell YWN that there was a Koran on the windshield, and the driver was of Middle-Eastern descent.
Additionally, after the LAPD arrived at the scene of the crash, the man continued on his anti-Semitic rant.
