Jacob "Yanky" Daskal, coordinator and police liaison for BSSP Boro Park Shomrim is allegedly under NYPD investigation for a recent assault that took place inside the Sefardishe Shul in Boro Park. Daskal, who is the vice president of the shul insisted upon davening for the amud for mincha (leading the afternoon prayer services). A congregant objected to Daskal leading the service, and a shoving match ensued. During this petty shoving match, Daskal is alleged to have kicked the alleged victim in his groin area resulting in serious injury. The victim's medical physician is alleged to have insisted upon a police report being made. The matter allegedly remains under police investigation. Rabbi Kaufman of the Sefardishe Shul is allegedly supporting the victim and has ordered the case before a Beis Din.
