Video footage released yesterday shows yet another attack on a religious Jew in North London.
The suspect can be seen walking towards an Orthodox Jewish man and then striking him in the face with what appears to be a bottle.
The incident took place at 18:40 last Wednesday and was reported yesterday by Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol.
The suspect is believed to be the same assailant who is thought to be responsible for the two attacks that made headlines earlier this week, both of which also occurred last Wednesday.
Like the man in each of the videos of the previous attacks, this man is also dressed in religious Muslim garb with a black beard, dark skin and dark and thick-rimmed glasses. He was wearing a dark green bomber jacket, white kufi and thawb.
If you have any more information, please contact the police on 101 or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123, quoting reference number: CAD 6513 22/08/21. 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.
