A 26-year-old Israeli was beaten by a group of seven men on a Berlin subway car after he filmed them singing an anti-Semitic song and refused to delete the video, the German Tagesspiegel reported Sunday.

The attack, which occurred on New Year's Eve, was made public over the weekend.According to the Berlin-based newspaper, when the 26-year-old asked the men to stop singing, one of them spat at him. The Jewish man was asked to erase the footage – which the refused to do – prompting the men to spit, beat and kick him.

The man suffered minor injuries, and police is looking into the incident.
