Youths in court for Manchester Jewish attack

By Marcus Dysch, September 23, 2008

Three teenagers are due to appear in court this week in connection with an attack on a Jewish man in a park.

The 22-year-old was attacked as he walked through St Mary's Park in Prestwich, Manchester, at around 8.30pm on June 25.

He suffered head injuries and required stitches to treat a 9cm cut.

The boys, who are all 15 and cannot be named because of their age, were due to appear at Bury Youth Court on Thursday.

Two of the youths face charges of racially motivated common assault, affray and common assault.

The third boy faces the same charges plus an additional allegation of a section 18 grievous bodily harm assault.
