Two people were hospitalized after being beaten by a mob with a baseball bat, Israel Police said.

The incident happened to a 20-year-old Be’er Sheva man, who was accompanied by a 14-year-old Tel Aviv boy on Saturday night in Kfar Kana.

While being beaten, the two men managed to flee and hide in a shop, but the attackers located them, broke the glass door and continued to beat them.

The 20-year-old suffered a fractured hand while the boy was hit in the head. Both were transported to Italian Hospital in Nazareth.

According to the initial police investigation, the two were attacked because the boy urinated on the street.

So far, police arrested three suspects. The suspects were brought before the Nazareth Magistrate’s Court for bail hearings. Charges are still pending.
