“It was very shocking and frightening, especially so close to our home,” said a neighbor, Chaya Nourafchand.

Video filmed in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood of Los Angeles, which has a large Jewish population, shows a man screaming vulgarities and antisemitic remarks as he attacked a car.

On Dec. 23, an unknown assailant sought to damage a car parked outside of a Jewish family’s house, culminating in destroying the vehicle’s back window with a brick.

“It was very shocking and frightening, especially so close to our home,” said a neighbor, Chaya Nourafchand. “We have to look over our shoulder now and look around and think about if where we are, where we’re going or what we’re doing is safe.”

Another resident who spoke on condition of anonymity said: “We thought that we were secure, we thought that we’re safe. We thought that we had allies in the world, but it doesn’t seem like we do.”

The suspect remains unidentified and at large, according to police.
