A police statement Saturday does not identify the man but says he was arrested late Friday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

The statement says increased bail has been requested due to the crime being motivated by hatred.

The attack occurred when a car caravan flying Palestinian flags stopped near a restaurant where diners were eating at outdoor tables and men from the vehicles began asking diners if they were Jewish.

A brawl erupted when two diners said they were.
