New York police arrested two teenage boys on Friday for attacking a Muslim man in the Bronx last weekend. The attackers allegedly shouted “ISIS” as they assaulted Mujibur Rahman, a middle-aged Bangladeshi man who was wearing traditional South Asian clothing while walking his 9-year-old-niece home from school in Parkchester. Rahman suffered only minor injuries from the attack, which took place on January 15. The boys, ages 14 and 15, now face a number of charges including harassment as a hate crime, according to the New York Times.
