Jewish children were physically assaulted by teenagers in Stamford Hill, it has been reported.
The two children, aged eight and eleven, were reportedly standing outside of Sainsbury’s in Stamford Hill when they were approached by a teenager who punched one of the children on the arm before laughing and walking over to his friends, saying: “This was a good one, I will do it again.”
The incident occurred on Friday 29th April at 15:45 and was reported on Sunday by Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.
