Multiple people were injured during a stabbing attack at a synagogue in a New York City suburb Saturday night, according to reports.
Fox News reported that Steve Lieberman, a reporter with The Journal News in Rockland County, posted on Twitter that “at least three people had been stabbed just before 10 p.m. and that local police were conducting a search of the area” surrounding the synagogue on Forshay Road in Monsey, New York, a town of about 18,000 residents about 35 miles north of New York City.
Fox News also reported that “video posted on social media from Monsey showed emergency responders rushing victims to ambulances, surrounded by the flashing red lights of numerous emergency vehicles.”
Fox News reported that “messages posted later by the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council of the Hudson Valley said that five people had been stabbed, including one victim who was struck six times, and that two of the victims were in critical condition.” That message added that “a suspect was seen leaving in a gray Nissan Sentra vehicle.”
One of the victims was stabbed at least 6 times, according to reports. The fifth/least severe case had a cut in his hand.
Reports said the perpetrator’s face was partially covered with a scarf, but skin showed him to be an African American.
