He then waits, blocking the garage entrance.\n\nAaron* (name changed per request) was visiting his elderly parents who own a condo in the building.\n\nHe parked his white car in a spot that wouldn’t block anyone and waited for an outdoor spot to become available. As he waited, he watched as a car driven by a Jewish man wearing a Kippah pulled up behind the taxi and honked.\n\nAccording to Aaron, the driver of the taxi shouted, “I won’t move for any f***ing Jews!” He then told Aaron to move his car.\n\nAaron, who was in his car facing the taxi, asked the driver to please move for the vehicle behind him, and told him that he could get the message across without using insults.\n\nAccording to Aaron, the driver immediately started shouting in English and Arabic (two languages Aaron speaks). “I’ll never move for you f***ing dirty Jews! I’m going to f***ing kill you!”\n\nAt that point a parking spot opened and a female supervisor from the condos motioned that Aaron should park.\n\nHe pulled into a spot and decided to snap a photo of the taxi’s number so he could report the antisemitic tirade to Champlain Taxi.\n\nAs soon as he snapped a picture the driver stormed out his taxi and began physically assaulting Aaron. He reportedly shoved Aaron against a car, put him in a headlock, and punched him in his chest and face at least ten times before the parking supervisor intervened.\n\nAaron is a short man and the driver was tall and well built. The driver allegedly kept shouting antisemitic slurs and threatening to murder Aaron as he beat him. He also smashed Aaron’s phone on the ground, breaking it.\n\nThe woman who intervened was also reportedly struck by the taxi driver who only left after another taxi driver told him to stop.\n\nAfter the attack, Aaron went to his parents, bleeding and in terrible pain. He later visited the hospital due to massive pains in his chest area.\n\nA police report has been filed and a complaint has been lodged with Taxi Champlain.
