More details on Lakewood beating

From the Asbury Park Press:
LAKEWOOD — Police have released a composite sketch of the man being sought in the attack on a third-grade Orthodox school teacher Tuesday night.

The investigation into the attack of Mordechai Moskowitz, 53, of Lakewood, is being conducted by Lakewood Police Detectives Greg Staffordsmith and Steve Wexler, along with Investigator Carlos Trujillo-Tovar from the Ocean County Prosecutors Office.

Police are asking the public to call if they have any information or saw anything out of the ordinary about 8 p.m. Tuesday on Princeton Avenue, Isnardi said.
The first comment on the article is somewhat less than sympathetic towards the Orthodox Jews of Lakewood:
It's terrible that this man was almost killed. That being said, why should anyone from outside of the orthodox cult get involved in solving this crime?. I doubt any of them would do likewise. The orthodox want nothing to do with Lakewood outside of their own interests (segregated housing, segregated schools, welfare, etc.)
