A man in his 60s has been stabbed in the back of the neck on his way to a mosque in Altrincham, Greater Manchester.
He was attacked outside the Atrincham and Hale Muslim Association at 17:50 BST and is being treated in hospital.
A 54-year-old man and a 32-year-old were arrested and are being questioned by Greater Manchester Police.
The force said it was treating the incident as a hate crime and asked any witnesses to come forward.
Det Insp Ben Cottam said the man was attacked "in broad daylight" and police were yet to gather evidence.
