Australian Jewish man punched in the neck and called “F***ing Jew” on way home

An Australian Jewish man has been punched in the neck by an assailant who called him a “F***ing Jew” in an unprovoked attack. The 22-year-old man was on his way home from synagogue in Melbourne when he was accosted by a drunk man railing about Israel. The man snatched his Jewish victim’s glasses, bent them, handed them back and punched his victim in the neck. Another Jewish man passing by in a car saw the incident and started shouting at the attacker. An off-duty policeman presented himself and the attacker fled the scene, dropping his wallet as he left. Local police have confirmed that they have the attacker’s details from his wallet and are investigating.
