Man arrested for 5 attacks on Jews in London’s Stamford Hill
London’s Metropolitan Police on Thursday arrested a man suspected of carrying out five “unprovoked assaults on Jewish people” over the past month in the heavily Jewish neighborhood of Stamford Hill.
The 28-year-old man was being held in custody on suspicion of “racially aggravated assaults,” the force said in a statement.
Police had been searching for the suspect since he was filmed two weeks agoassaulting a Jewish man and a child on the street in separate incidents on the same day.
In those attacks, police said the suspect struck a 64-year-old victim in the face, causing him to fall to the ground and suffer facial injuries and a broken foot, and, separately, punched a 14-year-old boy in the face, without causing lasting injuries.
Security footage of the incidents showed a tall man dressed in traditional Muslim garb.
