Five people were injured in an allegedly anti-Semitic attack when they were set upon by eight youths on Bondi Beach in Australia Saturday, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
St Vincent’s Hospital spokesman and member of the Bondi Jewish community David Faktor said the victims told him the attack was unprovoked and racially motivated.
He said the family was returning from a Jewish Sabbath dinner and did not know their attackers or do anything to incite the violence.
”Any kind of serious unprovoked attack is of great concern but the fact it was racially motivated is all the more concerning,” Mr. Faktor said.
Two men remain hospitalized with serious injuries.
Police arrested two teenage boys and a 23-year-old man. All three were charged with affray.
