A police investigation into a racist attack that followed last weekend’s Budapest Pride has been launched against unidentified suspects who, as a group, committed violence against members of a community, police said on its website on Tuesday.

Three people were attacked in Budapest’s fifth district at 6.20pm on Saturday. They were interviewed by police on Monday when they presented documents showing that they needed medical care after the incident.

Police are asking members of the public who witnessed to attack, made video recordings, took photos of it or have further information to call the emergency helplines 112 or 107.

The SZEMA Liberal Party told MTI in a statement on Saturday evening that three of its members had been attacked by a group of some 30 “uniformed neo-Nazis” near Budapest’s Nyugati railway station after the march.
