Last week, a large group of Orthodox Jews protested COVID-19 restrictions in New York City as some waved campaign flags promoting President Donald Trump.

Kornbluh said he had been "brutally assaulted, hit in the head, and kicked at by an angry crowd of hundreds of community members" during the Wednesday protest at Borough Park in Brooklyn.

Kornbluh added that the crowd yelled "Nazi" and "Hitler" at him after Tischler saw him and allegedly ordered the protesters to chase him down the street.

The demonstrations were held to protest new restrictions announced by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to address "COVID-19 hot spots that have cropped up" in Brooklyn, Queens, Broome, Orange and Rockland counties, the governor's office said in a statement Tuesday.
