A Jewish couple walking in Hackney at approximately 1:30 this morning was allegedly subjected to vicious antisemitic abuse at the hands of a group of teenagers, two of whom approached them shouting abuse about Jews and swearing. At one point they grabbed the Jewish man’s hat and continued to shout abuse when he asked them to give it back. The couple, who were visiting from abroad, were shaken but unharmed.
Stamford Hill Shomrim followed the teenagers, who were both male and described as “Asian” until police officers arrived to arrest them on Cazenove Road. Shomrim is assisting the victims.
