The victim, who was waiting for a bus with his girlfriend, was punched and kicked by the teenagers, who were arrested.
The incident took place at around 11 pm when the man noticed a group of teenagers hitting each other, apparently in jest, and asked them to be careful. One of the teens turned to him and said, "What's your problem?" and punched him in the face.
The man fell to the ground, and the teenager, joined by one of his friends, continued to punch and kick him. Luckily, a man who drove by stopped and rescued the man from the teenagers.
The summer vacation months usually see a rise in the number of crimes perpetrated by teenagers. Last week, four 15 year olds from a community near Modi'in were detained for burning three cats to death. The teens said they acted out of boredom.
