Man Attacks Others for Speaking Spanish…They Were Speaking Hebrew

A Wisconsin man was arrested early Saturday morning after police were made aware that he had attacked two men who he thought were speaking Spanish.

According to The Huffington Post, 23-year-old Dylan T. Grall from Janesville, WI, confronted the two young men, whom were actually speaking Hebrew, and began swearing and telling them to speak English. Grall punched both men in the face -- one fell to the ground and the other was left with one eye nearly shut.

The 23-year-old attacker told police he didn't touch the men, but he did admit to thinking they were speaking Spanish and telling them to speak English.

Grall has been charged with two counts of battery with a hate crime enhancer.
