    Man arrested for antisemitic attack on elderly man in Beverly Hills

    Jarris Jay Silagi, 44, of Los Angeles was arrested for the attack. It happened just after 9 a.m. Saturday, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department. Officers were called out to the area of N. Rexford Drive and N. Santa Monica Boulevard for reports that a person had been attacked.

    When officers got there, they found an elderly man who had a cut on his head after he had apparently been hit with a belt. Police said the man was with his spouse when he was attacked, and that there was no relation between him and the attacker. The man told police that while he was being hit with the belt, his attacker made antisemitic comments.

    The suspect allegedly shouted that he was going to kill the family because of their faith.

    Police said Silagi ran from the scene, but after a search, officers were able to find him and take him into custody.

    “This despicable act of hate against a member of our community will not be tolerated,” Beverly Hills Police Chief Mark Stainbrook said in a press release.
