France: Orthodox Jew attacked in Strasbourg


A 70 year-old Orthodox Jew, wearing a kippah, was attacked on November 6th.  The attack took place in the middle of the day, outside the main synagogue of Strasbourg.  The attacker beat the victim in the face and legs, and cursed him and said "Dirty Jew, I will kill you".  The attacker had previously cursed out a Jew passing by on a bicycle.

The victim was lightly injured and needed medical attention.

Witnesses to the attack called in the police and an ambulance.  The attacker, Lucas H, tried to escape in his car.  He was detained by the police, but shortly thereafter released.
