26-year old student attacked in front of Hamburg synagogue

During the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles on Sunday afternoon, a 29-year-old man dressed in army-like clothing had attacked a 26-year-old man who was about to enter the grounds of the Hohe Weide Synagogue in the Hamburg district of Eimsbüttel.

The police and general public prosecutor's office are investigating the man for attempted murder in a crime with dangerous bodily harm. They assume that the suspect has an anti-semitic motive.

In the trouser pocket of the suspect, a note with a hand-drawn swastika had been found after he had been caught following the attack.
