Summary

A Jewish reporter said he was attacked in Brooklyn as tensions mount among New York's Orthodox Jews over the best response to the coronavirus, which has hit the community hard since March.Jacob Kornbluh, the national politics reporter for the Jewish Insider, covered the second night of protests on Wednesday in the neighborhood, opposed to a new local coronavirus restriction imposed by  Governor Andrew Cuomo.Kornbluh, also a religious Jew,  has been prominent in warning the close-knit community about the public health dangers of COVID-19.Kornbluh said a mob, incited by rabble-rousers, spotted and surrounded him. On Friday, New York's Mayor Bill de Blasio said he expected police to make an arrest for the attack soon.Heshy Tischler, a pro-Trump Orthodox Jew and a Brooklyn City Council candidate leading the protests, was accused of whipping up the crowd against Kornbluh, calling him a "rat."Kornbluh did not go to the hospital after Wednesday night's incident but said he has already pressed charges against Tischler, according to NY1.Business Insider contacted Kornbluh for comment on several occasions.On the same night, a group also chased down and assaulted a Jewish freelance photographer and a third man, the New York Post reported.
