CROWN HEIGHTS [CHI] - A scuffle broke out yesterday between a Jewish Woman and an African-American teenager at Crown Heights' Brower Park.
According to witnesses, the altercation broke out when a young African-American girl threw a glass bottle, after which the Jewish woman went over and punched the child. This caused an uproar among the many African-American bystanders, one of whom called the police.
In the argument that ensued before the police's arrival, racial epithets were spewed back and forth, the girl's teenage sister pushed the Jewish woman's father to the ground.
When the police arrived, they listened to the accusations of the African-Americans and arrested the Jewish woman, which prompted cheering and rejoicing among the crowd.
A short while later they arrested the African-American teen as well, much to the crowd's protests and indignation.
The Jewish woman was identified as Sara Mina Setton, a teacher in Beis Rivkah. Her father is Levi Paul Huebner, a Crown Heights attorney.
Sources at the police department told CrownHeights.info that both women were booked at the 77th precinct on charges of assault.
