CROWN HEIGHTS: Two Arrested After Assault and Attempt to Flee from Police
CROWN HEIGHTS — Efraim Setton and Levi Paul Huebner were arrested Wednesday morning after they beat up another Jew and attempted to flee from police.
The incident took place at around 8:15am in front of 836 Montgomery Street near the scene of a car accident, where Setton attacked another Jewish man, kicking him and knocking him to the ground and proceeded to pummel him, kicking him in the legs and face.
Tens of people rushed to the victim’s aid after he cried for help, EMS and Police heard the cries as well and rushed over. As officers approached, Setton fled into the building and hid inside his apartment and refused to open his door to police.
EMT’s took the victim into an ambulance and began treating him for his injuries to his head, face and legs. He was later transported to a local hospital for further treatment.
As the victim was being treated, a police officer spotted Setton leaving his apartment building and running into a waiting car. Once inside, the car reversed down Montgomery Street at a high rate of speed, prompting police to call for backup and chase the car, which they stopped near the intersection of Albany Avenue.
The driver was the lawyer Levi Paul Huebner who is Setton’s father in law. When police approached the vehicle, the occupants refused to open the doors and refused to comply with police orders. Finally police got the door open and immediately placed Hubener in handcuffs as he was screaming “I’m in COP, I’m in COP, I need a hospital.”
Police attempted to get Setton out of the car but he refused and resisted as well.
After inciting a massive scene with many onlookers police managed to take them both into custody, between the two of them they were charged with Assault, Resisting Arrest and Evading, as well as Obstruction of Governmental Administration among other charges.
