Los Angeles County district attorney George Gascón’s office filed assault and hate crime charges against two men involved in a fight outside LA’s Sushi Fumi last May. The pair allegedly hurled antisemitic slurs at a group of Jewish diners and left five people injured. The Los Angeles Times reports the attack occurred during 10 days of Israeli airstrikes along the Gaza Strip that left hundreds of Palestinians dead.

Tickets range from $10 to $30.
