Police say they detained two suspects – a 38-year-old man and his 14-year-old son – in connection with a racist attack Saturday against the Oreokastro camp which houses migrant and refugee children near Thessaloniki in northern Greece. 

The two were detained after a complaint filed by a 15-year-old Syrian who stays at the camp.

The Syrian was also detained by the authorities after the 38-year-old man filed charges against him.

The 38-year-old was expected to appear before a prosecutor Monday. The two minors were released.
