Jewish teen hospitalized following anti-Semitic attack in England


(JTA) — A Jewish teenager was knocked unconscious in what Manchester, England, police are treating as a hate crime.

The 17-year-old was one of four young people assaulted Saturday night by three men at a train station near Heaton Park, located in the heart of north Manchester’s Jewish community, the London Jewish Chronicle reported. He came out of his coma on Monday. Two of the other victims were 18 and one was 20.

The Community Security Trust, Britain’s anti-Semitic watchdog, described the attack as a “serious anti-Semitic assault,” according to the Chronicle.
