SWEDEN – While Muslims are facing a wave of attacks and insults as a result of Trump’s election in the U.S., one man in Sweden claims the reverse effect happened to him.
A Swedish chef was reportedly assaulted by three Muslim men who punched and kicked him in the face and head, sending him to the emergency room.
Writing about the assault on Facebook, Anders Vendel explained that two men grabbed his arms from behind, while a third began punching him in the face. After about 20 blows to the face, Vendel fell to the floor, and all three men began kicking him in the head and face.
The blond chef, star of the TV show ‘The Struggle of the Chef’, is considered one of Sweden’s most prominent chefs.
He now works at the exclusive More Bistro and has also made several television appearances in his home country.
He said he was in a fast food grill on the city’s Per Albin Hansson’s way at 4:25am on Saturday morning when he was approached by the men, who he said were Muslims.
He wrote: “I am in the emergency room as of a couple of hours ago awaiting X-rays. I was beaten up by three Muslim men between the ages of 25-35.
“They thought I bore a resemblance to Mr. Trump.
“Two of the men grabbed my arms from behind and the third one started punching me all over the face. I tried to defend myself with my legs.
“After receiving about 20 fists to my face, I fell down to the floor. All three then started kicking me as much as they could in my face and head.
“I now have a broken nose, bumps, a clogged eye, mouth, lips and jaw. Even a broken right thumb.”
