Two 911 calls were heard in court on Tuesday in the trial of the gang assault of a gay, African-American man in Brooklyn.
Assistant District Attorney Timothy Gough introduced the tapes of 911 calls that were placed on Dec. 1, 2013 as 25-year-old Taj Patterson was being beaten in Williamsburg – allegedly by a group of Hasidic Jewish men.
“There's a bunch of Jewish guys beating up a black kid ... There's like 20 Jewish men and one, one black kid,” the unknown female caller said. “I didn't see any weapons — it just didn't look good — he was begging for a ride, but I didn't want to put him in my car... It doesn’t look safe.”
