It was reported late on Monday by Dov Hikind, a former New York state assemblyman and founder of Americans Against Antisemitism that an unnamed student at the University of New Mexico was viciously attacked by four to five men after hearing the student speak in Hebrew.
“A student at [the] University of New Mexico was out with friends this past weekend in Albuquerque. After hearing him speak Hebrew, some 4-5 men (a few were identified as Arab) began viciously attacking him while shouting antisemitic slurs,” wrote Hikind.
In the photographs shared of the student, it appears the incident left him with a black eye, bruises around the base of his nose, among possibly other unknown injuries at this time.
Hikind noted that “The hate criminals remain at large.”
The Piñon Post is investigating for more information on the matter and this report will be updated with any further developments. Requests for comment have been made to the UNM Police through the school.
According to the details of the incident, it may have been an incident that happened at 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 8th, where an unspecified “aggravated battery” occurred at the Cornell Parking Structure.
