The NYPD arrested a second suspect in connection with the violent beatdown of a Jewish man near Times Square last week. 

Faisal Elezzi, 25, of Staten Island, was busted Monday and charged with three hate crimes in connection to the attack of 29-year-old Joseph Borgen, according to police. 

The brutal assault took place last Thursday when Borgen was jumped by a mob of five men at 49th Street and Broadway. The victim was on his way to a pro-Israel rally.
