The New York Police Department on an alert for a man who made a threatening comment to a security guard of Campus Chomesh, one of the branches of the Bais Rivkah Jewish girls school in Crown Heights.
According to the NYPD, an African American male driving a silver SUV vehicle pulled up to the African American guard stationed at the school on Brooklyn and Lefferts Avenues.
The guard was helping students during dismissal when the driver displayed a firearm pointed at the guard and stated, “Why are you working for the Jews?”
The driver then drove away.
“We are treating the incident as a possible bias pending investigation,” the NYPD told COLlive.com.
Police also said they will provide extra police coverage at local Jewish schools following the incident.
