The Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office indicted three men on charges of aggravated assault on Wednesday for their attack on Arab maintenance workers at the Teddy stadium last year.

The men are suspected of attacking the workers for racist motives, after a mob of Beitar Yerushalayim fans cornered the workers in the stadium bathroom responding to cries that there were Arabs in the bathroom.

Two months ago the DA’s office indicted two Beitar Yerushalayim fans for calling out racial epithets against Arabs during the game.
