Steglitz, Berlin – A Jewish American tourist in Berlin was attacked and injured in an antisemitic attack, Berlin police said Wednesday.

The unnamed man, 23, was at a park around 9 p.m. near the corner of Rothenburg and Grunewaldstraße in the Steglitz district of the city when three men accosted him, police said in a statement posted on the Berlin Police website.

“The 23-year-old suffered a hematoma on the eye due to the blows in the face,” police said. They said he was attacked “because of his Jewish faith,” and opened a hate crimes investigation.

Police said the tourist filed a complaint after three men split off from a group of 10 people and started harassing him and asked if he was Jewish. When he replied yes, the men attacked him.
