Earlier this month, a yeshiva student was hospitalized after he suffered stab wounds, according to police reports in Ukraine.
Kiev Police said that the ultra-Orthodox Jewish man was stabbed after coming under an anti-Semitic attack by three assailants on Friday Night.
It all began when Dov Bear Glickman was walking home after eating dinner at the synagogue. Glickman suddenly realized that he is being followed by four assailants. Glickman’s home is located a few blocks from the synagogue.
The four suspects began beating him while yelling anti-Jewish epithets.
The victim began screaming for help and the four suspects fled from the scene. Glickman managed to make his way back to the synagogue where he collapsed.
A security guard at the synagogue called an ambulance that took him to the hospital. Glickman suffered from ruptured artery, and he underwent emergency surgery.
