A Chasidic man wearing traditional clothing was beaten in New York in what appears to be a hate crime.

Joel “Joseph” Weinberger, 26, was returning home in the evening on Thanksgiving from his place of employment at a Brooklyn yeshiva in the Williamsburg neighborhood when he reportedly was attacked by three men.

Weinberger reportedly offered the men his wallet, but they beat him severely and ripped apart his religious articles.

The police have not been able to categorize the attack as a hate crime since they have not yet been able to interview Weinberger at length, WCBS-TV in New York reported.
Weinberger reportedly did not get a good look at his attackers.
