Rabbi Aaron Raskin (photo), of Congregation B’nai Avraham on Remsen Street, was, as reported by the Eagle, attacked by a group of people while walking on Joralemon Street near Hicks Street at 6:18 this past Sunday evening, January 31. He was talking on his cell phone at the time of the attack, and it was knocked from his hand. Evidently he was able to recover it, and a police officer was near at hand, as a 15 year old was arrested and charged with attempted grand larceny.
