A Hasidic man walking along a Williamsburg street Sunday night became the latest victim of the ugly “knockout game,’’ in which innocent people are sucker-punched by strangers.
Many of the victims — there now have been more than 10 in the city — have been attacked in predominantly Jewish neighborhoods.
Eli Leidner, 26, was knocked down by a man and woman at 10:40 p.m. at Bedford Avenue and Taylor Street. He wasn’t badly hurt.
A relative said Leidner was sure he was targeted because he’s Jewish.
The victims have included a 76-year-old Brooklyn woman who was knocked to the ground in Brownsvlle Friday.
The previous Friday, an Orthodox Jewish man was walloped in Borough Park. Before he was struck, Shmuel Perl heard four thugs blabbering about “knockouts.’’
