FAR ROCKAWAY, Queens (WABC) -- The NYPD released surveillance footage of three suspects they're looking for in connection with two alleged antisemitic incidents in Queens.

Police say the group shouted antisemitic remarks at a 49-year-old man and threw rocks at him outside a synagogue in Far Rockaway on Friday.

A person from the group is also accused of threatening the victim with a razor. When a good Samaritan intervened, the individuals fled on foot in an unknown direction.

In a separate incident that occurred later that night, police say the three suspects pushed a man after he confronted them about antisemitic remarks.

No one was injured in the incidents.

The individuals are described as two males, and one female, all believed to be in their teens.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is assisting in the investigation.
