Three men are in custody tonight, charged with hate crimes, after vicious attacks against Jews in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

The NYPD says the suspects are responsible for two separate violent assaults within minutes of each other.

One of the attacks was caught on camera, where the thugs approached a man and violently beat him to the ground.

The fifty-one-year old victim was treated at the hospital.

The other person set upon a twenty-two-year old yeshiva student who was punched in the face but refused medical treatment.
