Man filmed smashing bottle on Orthodox Jew during FOURTH assault on community in one day


CCTV footage has emerged of what the Metropolitan Police say is one of four hate crimes committed by the same man during a violent spree on Wednesday, August 18. The latest footage appears to show a man, who has not been identified, dressed in a white kufi cap, brown coloured coat, white robe and dark-rimmed glasses use a bottle to assault a 30-year-old Jewish man as he stands alone on the street. On Wednesday evening, a Metropolitan Police spokesman told Express.co.uk no arrests had been made and an investigation is ongoing into the individual behind the attacks which included a 14-year old child being assaulted and a 64-year-old man being left unconscious.

In the footage, the assailant can be seen walking down Cavenove Road, N16 at 18:41pm.

He can then be seen drifting towards an Orthodox Jewish man as he stands alone on the street.

The assailant then strikes the man across the head with a bottle and unflinchingly keeps walking as the victim appears to walk away.

The attack is one of four assaults specifically targetting members of the Jewish community by the same man that day.

While at 20.30pm, a 64-year-old grandfather was left unconscious with a broken foot after being punched hard in the face as he walked alone to a synagogue.

The elderly man was found collapsed by bystanders with facial injuries.
