According to the witnesses, the attackers were armed with knives and clubs. It is noted that the brutal beating began after a minor dispute between one of the local Ukrainians and a Jew.

"The Ukrainian involved in the dispute called on his anti-Semitic friends to come and beat the Jews," Jew who spent Shabbos in Uman said.

Law enforcement officers, who arrived at the scene did not try to help, but "just stood and watched what was happening."

As a result of the incident, four injured Jews were taken to the nearest hospital.
