A 17-year-old Jewish teenager was beaten unconscious at a train stop in Manchester, England in a suspected anti-Semitic attack on September 5, the Times of Israel website reports today (September 7, 2015).

Three other Jews -- two 18-year-olds and a 20-year-old -- were also hurt in the assault. Police are treating the incident as an anti-Semitic attack.

The younger victim was still hospitalized today and was "suffering from a suspected bleed to the brain," according to the report.

Police said the group was approached by three men as they waited at the Bowker Vale Metrolink station in northern Manchester at around 11:30 p.m. The assailants hurled verbal abuse at the victims and then physically assaulted them. No suspects have been apprehended.
