Police in New York are searching for a woman who was filmed spitting on a child after hurling antisemitic remarks at a group of youngsters on the street.

The suspect, believed to be a woman in her 20s, allegedly approached an eight-year-old boy and two younger siblings, aged seven and two, who were stood on the sidewalk when the suspect made the antisemitic remarks and then spat on the boy.

The hateful suspect stormed up to the boys and said "Hitler should have killed you all" and then spat on the eight-year-old boy, The Jerusalem Post reported.

The incident occurred last Friday afternoon in Marnie Park of Brooklyn according to the New York Police Department.

No injuries were reported, and police are still looking for the suspect who is described as about 5 feet 3, with long, straight, black hair.

Disturbing security camera footage captured the incident, where the suspect spewed hateful comments to the young children, allegedly adding "I'll kill you and know where you live".

Dad of the victims, Aryah Fried, told CBS2: "This woman passed by them, yelled at them. Something along the lines of Hitler should have killed you all.

Fried said that his eight-year-old responded to the suspect and said he would save his little sister.

Fried added: "I gotta teach them not to engage, but he engaged. And she came running back at him, spat in his face and told him we will kill you all, I know where you live, and we'll make sure to get you all next time."

His children were out in the neighbourhood playing as they usually do, he said, and they have never seen the suspect before.

He continued: "I would hope that she understands the severity of what she did. To do it to anybody is obviously problematic, but for an adult to do it to a child is just beyond crazy

"We also teach our kids to look out for people that look like moms when they feel unsafe. And this woman looks like a person that might have been a safe looking person for the kids. So, what do we tell them now?".
