NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Police have arrested all suspects in connection with a string of attacks on Hasidic Jewish men in Williamsburg.

The attacks all occurred in a span of about 40 minutes before sunrise Monday as the men were walking to synagogue.

All three victims — who ranged in age from 56 to 71 — were punched in the face before the suspects rifled through their pockets. In each case, the suspects fled empty-handed. 

Deandre Diagle, 19, and Michael Bellevue, 20, were arrested late Wednesday on assault and robbery charges. Both suspects are from Brooklyn.

The remaining two suspects were arrested sometime on Thursday, police announced on Twitter.

No hate charges have been filed.
