The Broward Sheriff’s Office in Florida is searching for a man who deputies said hurled an antisemitic slur at a victim before assaulting him.

The attack occurred around 5:30 p.m. Feb. 7 near the 2400 block of Stirling Road in Dania Beach.

According to authorities, the victim was riding his bicycle and talking on the phone in Hebrew when a man walking by hurled an antisemitic slur at him before punching him in the face.

“The strike caused the victim to fall off the bike and to the ground,” a BSO news release stated. “The attacker then approached the victim, who stood up. A few seconds later, the subject walked away.”

Authorities said the attacker is seen in the video getting into a verbal altercation with several workers in the area who witnessed the assault, but he eventually left the scene.

The victim was hospitalized as a result of the attack.
