Four ultra-Orthodox Jewish teens were beaten in an unprovoked attack outside a White Castle restaurant in Borough Park, police in New York said.

Brooklyn Police said that the four Orthodox Jewish teens were beaten on Friday night at Ft. Hamilton Parkway and 42nd Street.

The teens, aged between 16 and 19, were walking when a group of 8 people left the White Castle restaurant, approached them and attacked while screaming anti-Semitic insults.

The four teens were injured and one was taken to a nearby hospital. Police have launched an investigation into the attack, but so far, no arrests have been made.

Earlier this month, Jewish children were horrified when anti-Semitic teens stormed their school bus and threatened to slit their throats, police in Australia said. Sydney Police said that five teenagers were arrested on Thursday, for the alleged vicious racial attack on the crowded school bus that left them traumatized.

Police said that a group of Jewish children, who were traveling in a private bus to the outskirts of Bondi Junction on Wednesday afternoon, were attacked by eight young men.

The children were racially taunted and physical threats were made. They shouted “Heil Hitler,” “kill the Jews” and “Free Palestine.”

The teens also threatened to slit the children’s throats, and said that Palestine must kill all the Jews.

All the children were traumatized and many were crying. The Jewish community cannot understand why the driver allowed the teenagers on the school bus.

Five of the eight teenagers were arrested overnight before being released to the custody of their parents.
