Zurich police suspect antisemitism as motive behind stabbing of Haredi man by teen

Zurich police say they suspect antisemitism as the motive in the stabbing attack last night in which an ultra-Orthodox man was critically wounded.

Police say they received a report of an argument involving several people at 9:35 p.m. According to their initial findings, the perpetrator attacked the 50-year-old man “and critically injured him with a stabbing weapon.”

Police describe the perpetrator as 15-year-old Swiss citizen, and said they arrested him at the scene.

Eyewitnesses told Swiss media the attacker shouted “Death to all Jews.”
