Police are investigating yet another anti-Semitic incident in Brooklyn.
Police officers said a 51-year-old Orthodox Jew was attacked by six or seven teenage boys who yelled anti-Semitic remarks at him last Friday night as he was walking near Bedford Avenue and Gravesend Neck Road in Sheepshead Bay.
The man was punched in the head, according to police.
The assault comes after a wave of swastikas were found scrawled along various locations throughout Borough Park and Kensington last week.
Also, windows of more than a dozen vehicles were shot out by a pellet gun Tuesday night in a predominantly Hasidic section of Williamsburg.
An anti-Semitic slur was also found painted on a street there.
No arrests have been made in any of the incidents.
The NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.
