Police Seeking Woman Who Verbally, Physically Assaulted Jewish Boy at WalMart

Howell pwalmart-bias-suspolice today are seeking to identify a woman who allegedly harassed a group young boys at the Walmart store on Route 9 here earlier this month.

Tensions are  beginning to flare as some residents in Howell, Jackson, Toms River in Brick react to a growing trend of Orthodox Jewish families moving into those towns surrounding Lakewood.

On September 5th, at around 10pm, a boy was standing in front of Walmart with his friends and was harassed by a woman.

“According to the victim, the female suspect enters the Walmart with another male and as she’s entering the store she turns towards and confronts him aggressively without provocation,” Chief Andrew Kudrick said.   “The male that was with the female unsuccessfully attempted to restrain her.”

The woman then asked the boy if he was from Lakewood.

“Go back to Lakewood you [expletive] Hasidic Jews”, she yelled at them and pushed one of the boys as she entered the store.

Kudrick said police were called, but the woman left the store minutes later and was gone prior to police arrival.

The female is described as a white female in her mid-twenties to early thirties operating what appears to be a newer model white 4-door Kia Optima. Photographs of the female suspect and her vehicle are attached.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect is asked to contact Detective Corporal Nancy Carroll #182 at ncarroll@howellpolice.org or (732)938-4575 Ext. 2894.
