A Jerusalem court ordered the extradition of a Brooklyn man to the United States in connection with a racially charged 2008 attack.

The Jerusalem District Court on Thursday approved the extradition of Yitzchak Shochet, wanted for allegedly beating two men in Brooklyn.

Police in New York say that Shochet allegedly used a bat to beat two African-American men in Crown Heights whom he reportedly had never met before. Shochet, , a member of the Shmira neighborhood patrol, was indicted on hate crimes charges.

He reportedly fled the United States to Canada in May 2008 following the attack and then came to Israel.
