The three were cut in the face and treated on the spot • The stabber - a released prisoner who had previously confessed to attempted murder • The parents testified that no antisemitic statement was made towards them during the incident
A young Hasidic couple and their one-year-old daughter were attacked with a knife by a released prisoner in Manhattan this week, the New York Post reports today (Thursday).
Documentation circulated by security cameras shows a man holding an umbrella approaching the three and stabbing them several times.
According to police and the video, the father was cut on the head, the mother was cut on the lip and the baby was cut on the chin.
They were treated on the spot and refused further medical treatment.
The stabber, Daryl Jones, was arrested and charged with three counts of assault, including assaulting a person under 7, and other offenses.
The parents testified that Jones did not make a statement of an antisemitic nature during the incident.
According to the New York Post, Jones was released from prison last month.
He was in jail for several years, after admitting to attempted murder committed during a violent robbery in August 2011 on the Upper East Side.
