A Pakistani migrant was arrested in New York City on Wednesday for allegedly trying to murder Jews by running them over with his car.

The New York Post reported that police arrested 58-year-old Asghar Ali after he allegedly revved the engine of his car and then mounted a curb at a Yeshiva and drove after Jews while allegedly yelling, “I’m gonna kill all the Jews.”

The anti-Semitic attack is now being investigated by the New York Police Department’s Hate Crimes Task Force, the report said, adding that police claim that no evidence exists to suggest that the incident was tied to terrorism.

The report said that Ali faces more than a dozen criminal charges, including attempted murder, attempted assault, and hate crimes charges.

Those that he allegedly targeted with his vehicle were able to run into a building before he reached them. Although no one was hurt during the incident, police said that there were five victims who were targeted, the report added.

“I came in, and the boys were like ‘Did you see the cameras? Did you see the cameras?’” a rabbi at the Yeshiva told The Post. “I’m more scared for them. I’m much more scared than they are — their adrenaline is up.”

Ali fled the scene but was later located by the Flatbush Shomrim Safety Patrol, which then notified the NYPD.

Bob Moskovitz, executive coordinator of the patrol, told The Post that they were informed that Ali “hangs around, he drives around the neighborhood.”


“And one of our members, when he was doing his daily patrol canvassing around the neighborhood, saw the car,” he said. “We were very pleased to be able to apprehend this individual. This is not somebody that we want driving around the streets, especially with this anti-Semitic, anti-Jewish climate that’s out there. So we were glad to be able to put this to rest. The community was kind of uptight about this. Now everybody can be a little more relaxed.”

The Flatbush Shomrim Safety Patrol released video of the incident.
