An eccentric, cape-wearing man who sits at the entrance of the popular Carmel Market in Tel Aviv was severely beaten by another man, in an incident which was captured on a cell phone video and released Thursday.

The attack occurred about four weeks ago, perpetrated by a young man smoking a cigarette and wearing a black shirt emblazoned with the Star of David.

In the video, passerby urged the man to stop the violence, but the "Messiah" was beaten for over a minute, punched and kicked and chased around the square.
