NYPD searching for pair of suspects in string of anti-Semitic hat thefts in Brooklyn

The NYPD is on the hunt for two men who have allegedly been stealing hats from Hasidic men walking in Bedford-Stuyvesant and Williamsburg.

Authorities say the two men, riding a Citi Bike, will approach a victim before swiping their hat from off their head and fleeing.

The pair struck four times on July 23, stealing hats from two 21-year-old Hasidic men, a 46-year-old Hasidic man and a 48-year-old Hasidic man over the course of roughly two hours.

Police have released surveillance footage of the pair from the fourth incident.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
