Prosecutor: Man faces bias crime charges for threatening Jewish man outside kosher deli where 3 were killed
A Jersey City man is facing terroristic threats and related bias crime charges after he allegedly threatened a Jewish man outside of the same kosher deli where three people were killed in a domestic terrorist attack in December.
The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office says that 38-year-old Taylor Stackhouse approached the property manager of the building that houses JC Kosher Supermarket on Martin Luther Kind Drive and made “multiple threats to the victim.” The property manager was dressed in traditional Hasidic Jewish clothing, according to the prosecutor. The incident happened on March 3 around 11:50 a.m.
Stackhouse was arrested in Jersey City Thursday afternoon without incident.
Authorities say that at this time there does not seem to be a connection between Stackhouse and the Dec. 10 shooting at the deli. Three people were shot and killed inside of the deli when two gunmen opened fire inside. Those gunmen were killed after an extended shootout with police.
Prior to the shooting, the gunmen got into an altercation with Jersey City Police Detective Joseph Seals, where they shot and killed him as well. The pair was also said to have killed a taxi driver a few days before the shooting.
Police say that the pair were motivated by a hatred of Jewish people and law enforcement officers.
