Around 17:30 on Friday evening a woman had just parked her car when she was attacked and robbed by three men. The woman, who is Jewish and in her 60s was attacked when she was standing by her car in the city of Nybro.

Swedish police write on their website that the men grabbed “her necklace which has a religious symbol and said patronizing things about her religious affiliation”.

According to Nyheter Idag, the religious symbol is the star of David. The three men are reported to have said various anti-Semitic slurs during the attack, and also things about Israel. They are also reported to have called the woman a foul word in Arabic.

A friend of the victim took to Facebook to write about what happened. She explains that even though there are second hand witnesses to the attack, the victim is afraid and didn’t want to report the attack to the police or witness against the attackers.

“Even Swedish people are afraid of witnessing! What is happening here? I don’t understand anything.” writes the friend on Facebook.

The attack has now been reported to the police and they are classifying it as robbery and hate crime.

Police say that they are looking for tips and are “very interested in coming into contact with people who saw anything on the scene”. The police have given a description of the men. They are around 25 – 30 years old. Two of the men are reported to have black beards. The third a reddish beard. The man with the reddish beard had some form of headdress. All of the men are reported to be over 180 centimeters tall.
