A man was caught on tape severely beating an Eritrean asylum seeker at the Tel Aviv Port on Sunday evening, in security footage shown on Channel 10.
Security cameras show a man, apparently deemed by the police to be mentally ill, hitting an Eritrean man for almost an entire minute for no reason.
The victim was evacuated to Ichilov Hospital with multiple injuries, including fractures to his face.
The police detained the assailant, who claimed he attacked the man because he felt his life was threatened. The police transferred the suspect to the Abarbanel Mental Health Center for examination.
