The rabbi told Bild the men insulted him in Arabic before assaulting him.
Berlin police are investigating an attack on a rabbi, the second in as many weeks in the German capital.
Police said Thursday the victim, identifiable as Jewish by his attire, was pushed to the ground by two unidentified suspects while walking in the Charlottenburg neighborhood Tuesday afternoon. They say he was treated in a hospital for pain in his leg and head.
They didn’t identify the victim, but the daily Bild gave his name as Jan Aaron Hammel. The rabbi told Bild the men insulted him in Arabic before assaulting him.
Two weeks ago, another rabbi reported being spat upon and cursed at in Arabic by two men in a building in the same general neighborhood as he walked by.
Both attacks are being investigated as hate crimes.
