Another Possible Anti-Semitic Bias Attack Investigated In Brooklyn

Another Possible Anti-Semitic Bias Attack Investigated In Brooklyn Police are on the hunt for two suspects who they say attacked a 45-year-old Orthodox Jewish man in front of a Midwood synagogue. CBSN New York’s Natalie Duddridge spoke with the victim on the phone, who said it happened Saturday night just as Shabbat – the Jewish sabbath – was coming to an end. He told police there was a verbal dispute with two men drinking outside the synagogue that turned violent. One of the men used their belt to hit him and yelled hateful slurs at him. EMS treated him for cuts to his face and head. A neighbor who lives next door described how shaken up the man was.

A New York police officer on Thursday admitted to breaking into a Nashville home next door to his Airbnb and then attacking the family inside.

Michael J. Reynolds, 25, was charged with assault and aggravated burglary after the July 2018 break-in. He returned to Nashville Thursday to plead no contest to one count of aggravated criminal trespassing and three counts of assault.

Prosecutors are expected to argue that Reynolds should go to prison for his crimes during a sentencing hearing in November.

Police Need Help To ID Boy Found Alone On Bike Late Saturday Night In Brooklyn

Police Need Help To ID Boy Found Alone On Bike Late Saturday Night In Brooklyn Police are seeking the public's help after finding an unidentified boy riding his bicycle alone in Brooklyn late last night and are now trying to reunite him with his family. © Provided by CBS Local, a division of CBS Radio Inc(credit: NYPD) Officers found the child riding his black-and-green bike around 10:30 p.m. near East 55 Street and Linden Boulevard in East Flatbush. He wasn’t able to give them his home address or his parent’s contact information. The boy is described as having brown eyes, black hair, 4-foot 2-inches tall and weighing 80 pounds.

Conese Halliburton watched Reynolds accept his guilt in court Thursday. When she walked into the hallway afterward, she was overcome by emotion.

She remembers Reynolds kicking in the front door of her 12 South-area home and charging in in the middle of the night. Video surveillance around the house showed Reynolds screaming and threatening the family and using racial slurs.

In surveillance footage with audio shared by Halliburton's neighbor, the man can be heard saying "Try to shoot me, and I'll break every f---ing bone in your f---ing neck," before calling them "f---ing n------."

Memories of that night and the man's anger have fueled nightmares for Halliburton and her two youngest sons, who were 8 and 11 at the time.

"At night time, lights are on in my house," she said. "They don't feel safe anymore."

Homemade explosive device found near spot of Brooklyn police shootout with masked gunman: officials

Homemade explosive device found near spot of Brooklyn police shootout with masked gunman: officials BROWNSVILLE, Brooklyn — Police confirmed Wednesday that an explosive device was discovered near the location where a gunfight between cops and a masked gunman broke out early Labor Day morning, killing the shooter. The homemade explosive was found in the area of Howard and Dumont avenues, the same area where officers first spotted the masked would-be gunman as they were patrolling in the early hours of Monday, Sept. 2, police said. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Halliburton is represented by Nashville attorney Daniel Horwitz, who came with her to court. Horwitz said Reynolds should be fired from the New York Police Department.

"I think he's a racist. I think he is not fit to carry a badge or a gun," Horwitz said. "There's no possible excuse for it. He is tasked with upholding the law rather than violating it."

Horwitz said the family had not pursued any civil lawsuits related to the case, but he did not rule that possibility out.
