Man Arrested After Five People Stabbed at Hanukkah Celebration in New York. Here's What to Know

Police captured the suspect, who they have identified as 37-year-old Grafton E. Thomas, in New York City hours after the attack. He has been charged with five counts of attempted murder and one count of burglary, according to the Town of Ramapo Police Department, which is investigating the case.
The incident unfolded next to the rabbi’s synagogue in Monsey, a small town in Rockland County about 20 miles outside of New York City. Rockland County has the largest Jewish population per capita of any county in the United States, according to New York State. About 31.4% of the county’s residents are Jewish.
The attack comes amid growing concern about anti-Semitic hate crimes in New York and the surrounding region. In the most violent incident, four people were shot and killed in nearby Jersey City in an anti-Semitic attack that targeted a kosher deli on Dec. 10.


  1. Here's what's the know
    The assailant's family has already announced he has a history of mental illness. Meanwhile the Jersey attackers are a fringe part of a fringe group that is normally "harmless".
    But when a White attacks Jews, he's always in complete control of his mental health and he also has Trump's cell number to confer with him.

  2. Soon enough you will discover that this saga has someone pulling the strings. There now seems to be another player in the arena. Can't help notice that the timing had inside information when exactly to attack. It was right after the candle lighting when the guest had taken seats. The victims seem to be selectively targeted. There still is one un-named victim out of the five. They also found some anti-semitic notes in his posession. The mental story was not the immediate initial response. We yet have to hear the rest of the story, H' Yerachem
