Incidents of violence or mistreatment of Jewish people have been seen in several cities across the U.S. amid the tensions and violence between Israel and Hamas in recent weeks. The two sides entered a ceasefire agreement early Friday and it appeared to be holding into Sunday.
The LAPD was requesting enhanced bail for Pabon, claiming his alleged crimes were motivated by hate, according to FOX 11.
