Suspect Arrested in Florida Attack of Man who Spoke Hebrew

The Broward County Sheriff's Office has arrested a suspect in connection with an attack of a Jewish man who was punched while speaking Hebrew earlier this month, American media reported.

Tevin Grant, 28, is facing charges in connection with the February 7 attack in Dania Beach, according to a written statement released by the sheriff's office on Tuesday, February 21. It was not immediately clear if bond had been set in the case.

Officials have said that the attack occurred at 5:30 p.m. near the 2400 block of Stirling Road. The man told detectives he was riding his bike and talking on the phone in Hebrew when the suspect directed an anti-Semitic slur at him.

The suspect then punched the Jewish man in the face before he fell from the bike and to the ground, according to investigators. The attack was caught on a surveillance camera that was posted in the area.

Law enforcement identified the attacker in a separate incident caught on video, in which he was in a verbal altercation with workers near the scene of the assault. He was also captured on cell phone video accosting people who ran over to help the victim after he was knocked off his bicycle. (INN / VFI News)
