Radical Turkish nationalists roughed up three U.S. Navy servicemen in Istanbul on Wednesday, pulling bags over their heads and shouting, “Yankees go home!” in an incident, which was captured on video.

The video, has since been posted on YouTube, shows a group of 20 men carrying a banner with Turkish founding father Mustafa Kemal Ataturk’s face on it.

They begin shouting at the sailors, then begin throwing garbage and paint at the sailors as they surrounded them and pulling bags over their heads.

The sailors are seen fleeing with the assailants in pursuit.

Police in Istanbul later took 12 people into custody in connection with an investigation into the assault, although no charges were filed as of late Wednesday night.
