Police are investigating after a 13-year-old Jewish schoolgirl was pelted with eggs outside a Jewish school in Bakers Hill, London, which provides education for children with special needs. The girl, who is autistic, was left completely traumatised.
CCTV showed youths on bicycles apparently loitering in wait, throwing the egg, and then cycling away before anybody could intervene. The girl immediately ran into the school.
Whilst the youths did not shout any antisemitic slurs, Stamford Hill Shomrim, a Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol, has reported numerous incidents in which Jews were pelted with eggs, and the youths appeared to be targeting the Jewish school.
Anybody with information should contact the police on 101, or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123.
