(Scroll down for video) An Orthodox Jewish man was stabbed by a neo-Nazi after a music event turned violent, police in the United Kingdom said.

The music event in Markfield Park, South Tottenham, erupted in violence when a group of men began attacking passersby with stones and flares.

The group members are believed to belong to the Polish extreme nationalist group, Zjednoczeni Emigranci. A police spokesperson said that they were called to the park at about 7:10 p.m., on reports of a disturbance.

The 24-year-old victim was taken to a hospital with a stab wound, and was later released. Although no one has been arrested in connection with the stabbing, police arrested and charged a man with religious and racially aggravated common assault for pushing a Jewish man who wearing a kippah.

“We will not tolerate such behavior in Haringey,” the police spokesperson said. An anti-fascist vigil was held in response to the incident outside the Tottenham Town Hall.
