NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — A Manhattan synagogue’s superintendent and security guard were attacked by an “irate” man last week after he was told to leave the premises, authorities said Tuesday.

On Thursday around 10:50 a.m. at Congregation Talmud Torah Ader on East 29th Street in Kips Bay, the suspect initiated a verbal dispute with the 57-year-old male superintendent and the 27-year-old female security guard, police said.

After the duo told him to leave the premises, the man became irate and started attacking the victims. The superintendent suffered a laceration to his upper thigh from an unknown object while the security guard sustained minor injuries to the right side of her chin, according to officials.

The incident comes as synagogues across the city are on increased security alert due to the Jewish High Holidays.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
