Jewish Teenager Beaten Unconscious in Manchester

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

The boy, 17, was one of four young people assaulted Saturday night by three men at a Metrolink train station near Heaton Park, located in the heart of north Manchester’s Jewish community, the London Jewish Chronicle reported.

He remains in the hospital with a suspected bleed on his brain.

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