A group of unknown assailants set upon and severely beat an Israeli visitor to Berlin’s Charlottenburg neighborhood Saturday night, according to German police.

In the attack, which took place at 6:30 p.m. at Lotte Lenya-Bow near one of the district’s train stations, the group first passed the 22-year-old on the street, and then doubled back to attack him.

“All four offenders punched and kicked him repeatedly, and then fled,” according to the police report.

The victim, who had to be briefly hospitalized due to the extent of his injuries, was later released as an outpatient.

Local authorities said he was not wearing a skullcap or any distinctive Jewish garments and was not robbed in the attack, apparently ruling out a mugging.

Police have opened an investigation into the circumstances of the attack, and, in particular, whether the assailants were politically motivated.
