Several Jewish homes in the heavily-Jewish neighbourhood of Stamford Hill have been daubed with crosses apparently painted in blood.
The incident took place at around 02:00 on 10th January on Portland Avenue, and was reported by Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.
The police are investigating.
If you have any more information, please contact the police on 101 or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123, quoting reference number: CAD5149 10/01/21.
A spokesperson for Campaign Against Antisemitism said: “This vandalism is grotesque and marks yet another escalation in the incidence of antisemitism in Stamford Hill. It is particularly concerning in view of the global rise of far-right antisemitism. We applaud the Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol, for their continued vigilance, and urge the police to do everything possible to find the perpetrators of his hideous crime.”
Campaign Against Antisemitism’s analysis of Home Office statistics shows that an average of over three hate crimes are directed at Jews every single day in England and Wales, with Jews almost four times more likely to be targets of hate crimes than any other faith group.
