The Guardian Angels volunteer patrol has taken to the streets of Williamsburg following a report Sunday night that a chasidic man was punched in the face, the latest in a series of attacks suspected to be part of a "knockout game."
An elderly woman was also reportedly attacked in East New York over the weekend.
Attacks around New York and in other parts of the country have involved young men punching strangers on the street in an attempt to knock them unconscious. Previous attacks happened in Crown Heights and Borough Park.
