Two suspects were arrested on Sunday in connection with a video on Facebook showing a young Muslim woman being attacked by two men in Amsterdam Noord, the police department Amsterdam Boven IJ announced on Facebook.

The video shows the woman, wearing a hijab or headscarf, lying on the ground and trying to cover her head with her arms while two men viciously kick and beat her. The men's faces can be seen on the video.

According to AT5, the men turned themselves in after friends and family recognized them on the video. They are in custody on suspicion of public violence. A police spokesperson called the video "too disgusting for words". The video can be seen here.
