Man Charged In Antisemitic Attack Moons Detroit Judge

The suspect charged in an antisemitic attack in Bloomfield Township last week mooned a Wayne County judge Tuesday during a hearing in a separate case involving a charge of assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer two years ago.

Hassan Yehia Chokr, 35, of Dearborn, appeared via video at a pretrial hearing in Wayne County Circuit Court before Judge Regina Thomas in a case that originally involved several assault charges as well as assaulting and resisting a police officer.

On Monday, Chokr made anti-Jewish and explicit remarks to the magistrate in 48th District Court in Bloomfield Township during his arraignment and flashed his middle finger via video. Bond was set at $1 million in that case involving a Friday incident when police said he drove to Temple Beth El in Bloomfield Township yelling at Jewish children and adults in a threatening manner, saying they would die and using racial slurs.
