London Police Searching for Man on Bicycle Caught Knocking Hats off Jewish Men

Police are hunting a suspected racist caught on CCTV knocking hats off Jewish men and assaulting a child close to a synagogue in north London.

The thug on a bike swipes at victims’ heads as he cycles past them on Cazenove Road, Stamford Hill.

Community safety group Shomrim claimed the same man punched other people in the face.

It shared footage online of the incident which happened less than a mile from a bus stop outside a Jewish girls’ school where vandals spray-painted a cross over the Star of David on Amhurst Park.

Metropolitan Police detectives appealed for witnesses over the latest crime and revealed a child had been hurt around 2pm on December 21.

The attacks comes amid a surge in antisemitic reports and Islamophobia since Hamas gunmen launched their murderous assault on Israel in October and Israel’s response.

Scotland Yard said: “Police were called shortly after 2pm on Thursday, December 21 to reports that a male on a bicycle had knocked the hats off a number of people before assaulting a child on Cazenove Road, N16.

“Officers attended and spoke with the informant. The victims and suspect had left prior to their arrival.

“Whilst there have been no arrests at this time, our investigation into this incident remains ongoing including a review of local CCTV footage.

“Since the beginning of the conflict in Israel and Gaza, we have increased reassurance patrols across Stamford Hill and the wider area.

“We have been clear that hate has no place in London, and any allegation of antisemitism reported to police will be investigated robustly.”
