Two men shouting antisemitic death threats at synagogue-goers arrested by police helped by Shomrim
Two men have been arrested after allegedly shouting antisemitic abuse including death threats at Jewish people walking to synagogue in Stamford Hill in London. The two adults, described only as a black man and a white man reportedly began shouting abuse at 09:00 yesterday morning as Jewish families made their way to synagogue, at one point even entering the front garden of a synagogue.
Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol, assisted officers from the Metropolitan Police Service in arresting the men.
