Polish man and woman arrested for allegedly punching and pushing Jewish people near a synagogue
A man and woman, both described as Polish and middle-aged, were arrested yesterday evening on Clapton Common in London after allegedly attacking Jewish people near a local synagogue. The couple, who had a dog, allegedly approached Jewish people, banging on a car, pushing two people and punching another in the face, shouting “Kurwa” (a Polish expletive) and telling them in broken English: “Dog stay here England, you Jews go away.”
Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish neighbourhood watch patrol was called and followed the assailants to Clapton Common where they were arrested on suspicion of common assault and racially aggravated public order offences.
We commend Stamford Hill Shomrim for their fast response which ensured that the suspects could be arrested.
