A man has been charged with racially-aggravated common assault and a racially-aggravated public order offence after allegedly attacking two Jewish men in the early hours of this morning. The man, who appeared to be drunk and is believed to be an Italian in his late twenties or early thirties, saw a Jewish passerby, grabbed his side curls, and shouted in broken English, “F***ing Jew, why you kill the kids?” He then allegedly shouted “Motherf***er Jude, I want to cut your —” at a second Jewish man and made a motion as though to cut his side curls.
Stamford Hill Shomrim, the Jewish neighbourhood watch patrol, alerted the police and the man was arrested shortly afterwards on Forburg Road.
We commend Stamford Hill Shomrim for their zero-tolerance approach. We will follow the case with interest.
