Police are investigating claims of a fresh wave of antisemitic attacks.

The police were called shortly after 2pm on Thursday (December 21) to reports of a male on a bicycle knocking the hats off several people before assaulting a child in Cazenove Road, Stamford Hill.

Officers spoke to the informant, but the victims and suspect had left before their arrival.

No arrests have been made so far, but the police said they are reviewing local CCTV footage and making enquiries.

Detectives have now identified a victim and are continuing enquiries to locate the suspect and additional victims.

Shomrim, a neighbourhood watch group in north London, shared clips of the incident on X, that appeared to show a hooded man cycling on a pavement and knocking the hats off some Jewish people outside a synagogue.

They also posted pictures of anti-Semitic graffiti at a bus stop outside a Jewish girl’s school in Amhurst Park.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said in “hate has no place in London” and “any allegation of antisemitism reported to the police will be investigated robustly”.

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

Officers have urged anyone with information to call the police on 101 quoting reference CAD 3841/21Dec.
