Two men have been arrested and charged in what Boulder police said was a bias-motivated assault against a Jewish man at a bar on the Pearl Street Mall last month.
According to police a 22-year-old man said he was at the Sundown Saloon, 1136 Pearl St., at 12:30 a.m. Dec. 19 when three males approached him and told him to remove his yarmulke, a skullcap traditionally worn by Jewish men.
The man refused to remove the yarmulke, stating that he was Jewish.
One of the three men then struck the victim in the side of his head with a glass, shattering the glass and knocking the victim down. A second man then kicked the victim after he fell down. The victim was taken to a local hospital with a laceration to his head that required 20 stitches.
