A Jewish mom and her young son were assaulted in Brooklyn — the fifth anti-Semitic attack this week, police said Friday.
Ayana Logan, 42, approached the 34-year-old woman and her 3-year-old son on Avenue U near West 5th street in Gravesend at around 4 p.m. Thursday, yelled out an anti-Semitic slur, and then hit the victim with her bag, cops said.
“You f–king Jew, your end is coming!” Logan allegedly shouted, police sources told The Post.
Logan was arrested and charged with assault, hate crime, harassment, acting in a manner injurious to a child, and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.
The unidentified victim was not hospitalized, but received medical attention at the 62nd Precinct, cops said.
The alleged assault comes as cops are investigating at least four other anti-Semitic attacks in the city this week.
Early Friday, Mayor de Blasio said more cops would be patrolling Orthodox Jewish enclaves in Brooklyn.
“Hate doesn’t have a home in our city… Anyone who terrorizes our Jewish community WILL face justice.” he tweeted.
“In light of recent anti-Semitic attacks, the NYPD will increase their presence in Boro Park, Crown Heights and Williamsburg.”
