A prominent member of London’s charedi Jewish community was called an “F***ing Jew” and “the Devil” yesterday afternoon, when he came to the aid of a taxi driver who was being attacked by the roadside.
The Jewish man was driving through Kilburn when he saw a man attempting to drag a taxi driver from his vehicle. The Jewish man pulled over to assist and was immediately verbally abused by the driver of the car behind him called him a “F***ing Jew” for stopping his car.
The man who had been attacking the taxi driver then approached and hugged the Jewish man, before becoming violent and calling him “the Devil”. The taxi driver and the Jewish man then assisted two police officers in restraining the attacker, described only as a black male, who was lashing out at police officers who had arrived on the scene.
The Jewish man was able to film the verbal abuse by the driver of the car behind him, described only as an Asian male, and has reported that incident to the police.
If anybody witnessed the incident or has information that could aid the investigation, they should contact the police by dialing 101.
