Two charedi Jewish men walking home were pursued by a car and pelted with onions by is occupants. The men were walking in the Amhurst Park area near Stamford Hill in north London when the first onion was thrown at them at approximately 21:55 by a passing car.
After the Jewish men parted company and went separate ways, the car repeatedly followed one of them and pelted him with onions, whilst shouting abuse. The victim described the attackers as a white male in his mid-thirties who was driving the car, and at least two white teenage male passengers. The car was described as small and light-coloured.
The victims are being assisted by Stamford Hill Shomrim, a Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol and the incident has been reported to the Metropolitan Police Service. Anybody with information should call the police on 101, quoting reference CAD2223/05/11/2017.
