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.
