Boston, Massachusetts 2021-07-02 05:36:25 –
Boston (WHDH)-Community members will meet around a rabbi recovering at the hospital after being stabbed several times outside Brighton’s Hasidism Center on Thursday.
Rabishuro Monoginsky is said to be in a stable condition at the Boston Medical Center after stabbing the shallow house area of Chestnut Hill Avenue at around 1:15 pm.
People will meet at Brighton Common on Friday at 10 am to show their support for their 12-year-old father, Noginsky.
Rabbi Dan Rodkin, director of Shaloh House, described the moment leading up to Noginski’s attack.
“What happened, when the attacker came to him, he was sitting on the steps, talking on the phone and asking him to open the car,” he recalled.
According to Rodkin, a suspect, later identified by police as Khaled Awad, 24, in Brighton, took out his gun and tried to push Noginsky into his car. Fearing that he might be kidnapped, Rabbi ran to a park across the street.
“The attackers tried to hit him dozens of times. Rabbi Shlomo was able to wrestle with him and protect himself,” Rodkin said. “He had about eight puncture wounds on his arm and shoulder.”
According to police, paramedics on the scene rushed Noginsky to the hospital to treat a non-life-threatening injury.
Police tracked and arrested Awad after the attack, police added.
He will be charged with assault and assault with dangerous weapons, assault and assault on police officers, in the Brighton District Court.
Investigators say they found a gun and knife.
“We are actively investigating and will work in solidarity with the Jewish community to condemn the attack tomorrow morning,” the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office issued a statement.
At the time of the attack, there was a summer program for elementary school students in the center, but the children were not injured.
The Jewish community says they are shocked but standing together for Noginsky.
“We can share the light and dispel the tremendous amount of darkness,” said Shallow House Labyrinth Myers. “We continue to convey the message of calling someone who hasn’t spoken for a while to be willing and kind to take action, especially for everyone there, especially in these dark situations. Be kind to your neighbors and be proud that you are Jewish to the Jews there. “
Rob Leikind, Regional Director of AJC New England, issued a statement that added: “This horrific crime underscores the sense of vulnerability that many in the Jewish community feel today. Anti-Semitic activity poses a viral threat. Arresting the suspected criminal of this crime. Thanks to the lost Boston police. It clearly reminds us of the heightened danger that many of us are feeling today, whether or not it was determined to be a hate climb. “
The motive for the attack is under investigation.
