Brooklyn Man of Unknown Race Arrested for Seven Knockout Attacks on Whites

Posted by on Jan 04, 2014 at 11:09 am

All we have to go with is a sketch of the perp. No stories that we can find mention his race. All his victims, including elderly ladies, were white and/or Jewish.

It was his turn to get knocked out.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force busted a Brooklyn man for at least seven “knockout” assaults, cops said Friday.

Barry Baldwin, 35, punched out the victims between Nov. 9 and Christmas Eve in Canarsie and Midwood, police said.

All of the victims were white women and most were Jewish, a law-enforcement source said. At least two of the attacks occurred on the Sabbath.

“Everyone will sleep a little easier,” said Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who said the attacks frightened the community.

On Nov. 9, Baldwin allegedly socked a 78-year-old Midwood woman while she pushed her great-granddaughter’s stroller at Avenue L and East Fifth Street.

The elderly victim was knocked to the ground in the unprovoked attack.

Nearly a month later, he punched a 20-year-old in the head, at around 2:40 p.m. on Dec. 7, cops said.

Baldwin’s next target was a 33-year-old mom walking with her 7-year-old daughter on Elm Street near East 12th Street on Dec. 21 in Midwood, cops said.

The victim fell onto the child before crashing to the ground, police said. She suffered cuts and bruises to her head, hands and knees, according to a Criminal Court complaint.

A 78-year-old sitting in on a bench in Canarsie was the next to suffer the crazed attacker’s wrath on Christmas Eve. Fifteen minutes later, he attacked another elderly woman nearby at corner of East 93rd Street and Seaview Avenue, court ­papers charge.

Eric Holder was unavailable for comment.

    Follow the link to the story on the guy the DOJ is pursuing hate charges against. First paragraph: White Texas man beats old black man. Picture of the assailant in mug shot and perp walk – check. Reminder that victim was defenseless old man – check. These are important facts. Now, in the story about Baldwin, no mention of race and no mention at all of the victims.

    Both were charged with hate crimes, but only in one article are the race, age and gender of the assailants and victims important.

    just another devotee of St. Trayvon of Skittles pursuing his religious duties. after all, years of indoctrination in black racism has some effect, no? obviously these white racist women had it coming.

    I thought this behavior was some sort of teen angst. What billprep said: “Thirty-freaking-five?!?!”
