A Jewish brother and sister were attacked while standing outside of a home in Melbourne, Australia, the Australian Herald Sun reported on Saturday.

The siblings were apparently wearing religious symbols at the time of the attack. The 22-year-old victim was struck on his head while his 25-year-old sister, who was attacked with a sharp object, suffered wounds to her shoulder and cheek.

According to the report, the attacker left the scene immediately after the attack, and local police are investigating the case. The incident is being treated as a suspected anti-Semitic attack.

Dr. Dvir Abramovich, the Anti-Defamation Commission Chairman, responded to the incident and said it was “shocking on many levels” and “was in fact driven by anti-Semitism.” He added that the incident should be treated as a hate-crime.
