A man on a bicycle rode on several streets in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, shouting threats including “Kill the Jews,” local media is reporting.

The man, described as black and in his 30s, attracted the attention of passersby at about 10 p.m. on Saturday, the Collive.com news site reported.

A witness called 911. Another filed a police report about the incident, CrownHeights.info reported.

Police are looking for surveillance video to try to identify the man on the bicycle.

Earlier on Saturday, a black man wearing a hoodie and sweatpants walked on a street in Crown Heights shouting, “Hitler did not kill enough of you in the gas chambers” and other verbal abuse, CrownHeights.info reported.

The incidents follow a spate of attacks on Jews in New York City, New Jersey and the town of Monsey, in upstate New York.

On Sunday, Jewish groups are holding a solidarity march in New York City to protest the recent violence under the banner “No hate, no fear.”

New York’s Jewish community on Monday said it had hired a counter-terror expert to head a security initiative for Jews in the city.
