Boston (WHDH)-Rachael Rollins, a lawyer in the Suffolk County district, visited Brighton’s rabbi on the road to recovery after being stabbed many times last month.
Rollins arrived at Rabino Ginsky’s house Wednesday afternoon to see how he behaved while investigating an attack near a Jewish full-time school.
A 12-year-old 41-year-old father said he was calling outside the building when he was later contacted by a man identified as 24-year-old Khaled Awad.
Police say Awad stabbed him eight times when he asked for the rabbi’s car key and the rabbi tried to escape. Investigators say he also had a gun at the time of the attack.
Awad pleaded not guilty to assault and battery charging.
At a meeting on Wednesday, Rollins said Noginsky was a victim of hate crimes and will hold the suspect liable.
“We will fight to ensure that this individual is held accountable,” she said. “And we want the Jewish community to know that anti-Semitism exists and that we take responsibility when people are involved in hatred.
