Clifton Avenue Store Manager Attacked With Rocks & Beer Bottles

The manager at a Clifton Avenue store was attacked yesterday by a group of men, TLS has learned. At about 9:30 PM yesterday evening, the Frum manager went to get his car from the parking lot behind the shopping strip, when he noticed a group of Hispanic men hanging around near his car.

Ignoring the group, the manager sat into his car and turned on the engine, but didn’t see what was coming.

The group then began attacking him by throwing rocks and beer bottles at his vehicle, before they fled to Clifton Avenue.

Police were called – but took about 10 minutes to arrive, the manager says – and by the time police arrived, the parties were gone.

Luckily, the manager was uninjured and the vehicle only sustained minimal damage.

This afternoon, the group was once again spotted in the area and police were flagged down by the store owne.

The store-owner tells TLS the men were ticketed for unknown offenses and sent away from the area.

The store-owner also says, police offered to standby at his store during closing for the next few nights, to ensure the situation is under control and the incident doesn’t occur again. TLS-CCP/TLS-MK.

  1. Maybe a good idea for the Police department to look into why it took 10min to come to a area that’s round the corner from them. Maybe they were all busy with the fire works if yes we should stop the fire works as our safety in number 1.

  2. I know the PD is understaffed at night, but ten minutes is too long to wait when you’re being attacked. The LCSW would’ve responded quickly and kept the thugs in sight until the police arrived on scene. The miscreants would have then been dealt with b’shaas maaysa instead of a day later and the risk of never catching them would have been eliminated.

  3. Yes lets tell the truth here. A lone man walking alone to his car is going to start up with a bunch of guys. Yes lets tell the truth. a lone guy is going to start throwing rocks and bottles. yes lets tell the truth here….is anyone able? or do they just want to defend anyone except a jew.

  4. Know that local and state police pretty much have their hands tied when it comes to illegals. Ask any cop, G-d bless them. The Feds have jurisdiction (ICE) and they do squat as in “nada” and “gornisht”.

  5. You can not get blood from a stone, perhaps if there were more officers on the road that would be fine but getting them tied up on stupid calls it what takes time to get out of ..everyone has a story and wants to tell it. The fireworks had nothing to do with this call, all those officers were off duty on a special detail. You want to pay them OT ..by all means they will eat it all up..and then some

  6. Thanks for filling me in on assaults being “stupid calls”. Hope you don’t have such a “story”. Then you just might change your mind, that is if your head doesn’t get cracked open, G-d forbid. Talk about getting “blood from a stone”. Stay safe.
