Outspoken right-wing radio host and City Council candidate Heshy Tischler was assaulted outside his Borough Park home this week, authorities said.
Tischler was sitting in his car waiting to pick up his granddaughter on 43rd Street near 17th Avenue around 5:20 p.m. Wednesday when a man stepped out of a gray sedan and threatened him, according to police.
“I know where you live,” the suspect allegedly said. “I will get you.”
Tischler got out of his car and started recording — prompting the man to knock the phone out of his hands, police said.
Then a second suspect got out of the car and punched him twice in the face and head, according to police.
The duo took off and remains at large.
Tischler knew the men from a previous rally that he had attended — where he exchanged words with the two suspects, sources told the Yeshiva World.
He immediately recognized them when they showed up at his home.
“I did not strike back. He struck me in front of many witnesses here in the streets of Borough Park,” Tischler said in a video posted to Twitter. “In front of my wife, in front of my granddaughter, in front of my house, he came out here. He couldn’t knock me down. We must fight back. We must stand up. “
“They came to the center of Borough Park, to my house, to get me!” he said. “I hope they catch the guy, because I want him to be careful, because I’m going to catch him. This is not going away so fast.”
Tischler pleaded guilty last month to charges that he egged on a mob to attack a reporter during an anti-lockdown protest last year.
He was sentenced to 10 days of community service after copping to a misdemeanor charge Friday of “inciting a riot” that led to protesters attacking journalist Jacob Kornbluh in Borough Park on Oct, 7, Brooklyn DA spokesman Oren Yaniv said at the time.
Kornbluh, an Orthodox Jew was punched and kicked by an angry crowd who screamed at him, calling him “Nazi” and “Hitler” amid protests over the state’s new coronavirus restrictions. The unruly protesters appeared to be encouraged by Tischler.
