A man has been arrested after two Jewish teenagers were allegedly subjected to anti-Semitic abuse including shouts of “kill the Jews”.
Shouts of “Allahu Akbar” and “f****** Jews” were reported to have been directed at the boys, aged 14 and 17, as they walked in Manor Road, Stamford Hill, on Sunday night.
Police arrested a man on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence after being called at 11.30pm.
Jewish neighbourhood watch group Shomrim were also called to the scene.
Supervisor Chaim Hochhauser said: “Antisemitism and all types of hate crime is unacceptable, I urge victims and witnesses to report such incidents immediately. Such incidents should never be accepted as the norm, no matter how regular these incidents sadly happen.”
