A 70-year-old woman had to be treated in hospital after a man aged 19-20 allegedly attacked her from behind and smashed her head into a brick wall, whilst shouting “Żyd”, which is Polish for “Jew”. The victim felt sick and frightened and required hospital treatment after suffering head pain from concussion. Stamford Hill Shomrim, a volunteer Jewish neighbourhood watch patrol, are assisting the victim.
The attack occurred on Saturday at approximately 16:30 on St Kilda’s Road in Stamford Hill, north London. Anybody with information should call the police on 101.
This is a particularly repulsive incident and it is important that the perpetrator is brought to justice.
