German police in the city of Dresden are searching for a man with a Hitler style mustache and wearing a Nazi-style helmet emblazoned with a swastika, who is accused of assaulting two Afghan migrants in the city, the Israeli news site Ynet reported Tuesday.

The man, who is being sought on charges of assault and the display of banned symbols, is described as strongly built, about 25-30 years old, with a shaved head.

Police said that witnesses saw the suspect approach two Afghan migrants, aged 21 and 26 years and began insulting them, before he escalated to striking them.

According to Ynet, passersby intervened to stop the assault. The suspect allegedly gave a Nazi salute before fleeing the scene.

Police will charge the suspect with assault and for publicly displaying a swastika. German law prohibits the display of a swastika.

According to a survey published in the German newspaper Bild, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s popularity has dropped 2.5 percent to a 32.5 percent approval rating, the lowest for Merkel since the 2013 election.

The migrant crisis in Europe is considered to be a major factor in the drop, and is the worst refugee crisis seen in Europe since World War II.
