A man was attacked onboard a bus in South Wales on Monday, while travelling with his Mum from Barry to the Welsh capital.
The 38-year-old and his mother were approached by a man and woman who asked where they are from – upon discovering their Israeli heritage, the attackers punched the man in the eye, according to South Wales Police.
The attackers quickly fled the scene, while paramedics arrived and treated the victim for a facial injury.
Authorities have appealed to the public for information, urging eyewitnesses to come forward, by either calling police on 101 quoting reference number 1800440009 or crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
