Taj Patterson was allegedly assaulted in Williamsburg. Its being investigated as a hate crime. -- Family Handout

Taj Patterson was allegedly assaulted by a group of Hasidic men in Williamsburg.

A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned.

Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”

“I’m walking down some block by myself and then the next thing I know, I’m surrounded by a group of Hasidic Jewish men and they’re attacking me,” Patterson said. “I was alone. I was an easy target. I’m black. I’m gay, a whole slew of reasons.”

Patterson was left with a broken eye socket, a torn retina, blood clotting, and cuts and bruises to his knee and ankles. He was rushed to Woodhull Hospital for treatment.

Patterson was “highly intoxicated, uncooperative and incoherent,” after the assault, according to a police complaint — but he remembers the ringleader.

“There was a crowd around him, cheering him on and getting him rowdy, and he would grab me and push me against the wall,” Patterson said.

While the instigator was kicking him in the face, “he told me to ‘stay down, f----t, stay the f--- down,’ ” Patterson recalled. “And that’s really all I can remember of that.”

Evelyn Keys, an MTA bus driver, was rounding the corner of Flushing Ave. and Spencer St. when she saw the horrific attack unfold before her eyes.

“I get out of the bus and all these men were standing up straight around him,” says Keys. “Taj is laying down on his back. I went up to him and he was in so much pain. He says, ‘I can’t see . . . I can’t breathe.’ ”

Patterson’s mother, Zahra Patterson, 52, said she now fears for her son’s safety.

“I mean, we’ve been living in this community for close to 30 years, so you’re telling me my son can’t walk there anymore?” she said. “You cannot attack people walking down the street.”

Wait he was walking home at 4:30am?

What neighborhood is this? 
 
I hope he recovers without any long term effects. That is a sin and a shame.

Dov Hikind: Hasidic Jews Attacking A Black, Gay Man 'Sounds So Out Of Character'



A 22-year-old black, gay man was left with a broken eye socket and torn retina after more than a dozen men violently attacked him in Williamsburg earlier this month, NBC New York reports.

Taj Patterson, a fashion student, said the men wore clothes typically worn by Hasidic Jews and allegedly shouted anti-gay slurs during the assault.

“I’m walking down some block by myself and then the next thing I know, I’m surrounded by a group of Hasidic Jewish men and they’re attacking me,” Patterson told The Daily News. “I was alone. I was an easy target. I’m black. I’m gay, a whole slew of reasons.”

Reports also indicate that Patterson was intoxicated at the time of the attack.

As of this time, no suspects have been identified, but the NYPD said the alleged attack was being investigated as a hate crime.

Dov Hikind, the same New York state assemblyman who wore blackface to a Purim party earlier this year, is dismissing Patterson's accusations as "bizarre" even though "something clearly happened" to him.

Hikind said such violent behavior "sounds so out of character" for Orthodox Jews.

The assemblyman has, however, recently raised alarm over a series of alleged "knockout" attacks by blacks targeting Jews in Brooklyn.

"It so happens that literally almost every single victim in New York has been Jewish and almost every single perpetrator has been black," he told Fox News. "It's not my job to say is it racial or not. At this point, it hardly matters."
On Tuesday City Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo apologized for comments she made last week in which she said "knockout" attacks could be caused by black Brooklyn residents' resentment of Jewish residents' "success."
