A second brutal attack in a week by anti-Semitic hoodlums was reported here today when Ricardo Heraldo d’Alessandro, 18, was brought to police headquarters with five swastikas carved on his forehead and both cheeks. Mr. d’Alessandro told police that five thugs knocked on his door this morning and attacked him when he opened the door. Mr. d’Alessandro is the son of a Jewish mother, whose maiden name was Brodsky.
