2 teens arrested in alleged hate crime attack on Bronx Muslim man
Police say they arrested two teens accused of attacking a Muslim man outside an elementary school in the Bronx.
They took the two boys, 14 and 15 years old, into custody Wednesday. 

 

Mujibur Rahman, a Bangladeshi Muslim, was picking up his niece from P.S. 119 earlier this month when the two allegedly approached him from behind and beat him to the ground.
Rahman says his attackers screamed "ISIS" several times during the assault. He says he believes he was targeted because of his Islamic clothes.
Rahman spent the night at the hospital after suffering several broken bones. 
Local political leaders joined members of the Muslim community at rallies over the course of two weeks decrying the attack, which was caught in part on surveillance video.
