It has been reported that people inside of a vehicle threw a Red bull can at a Jewish pedestrian in Stamford Hill, and then proceeded to yell racist abuse at him.
The reported incident was said to have occurred directly beneath Hackney Council’s number 64 CCTV camera at 23:18 on Tuesday.
The incident is believed to have taken place outside 21 Amhurst Park and was reported today by Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.
If you have any more information, please contact the police on 101 or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123. Hackney Police are reportedly investigating it as a hate 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.
