London: Gang Reportedly Knocked Off A Man’s Shtreimel, Shouted Expletives

Campaign Against Anti-Semitism reports a man from north east London’s Charedi Jewish community, has said that he was approached by a gang of black males, one of whom shouted “(expletive removed) Jew” before knocking off the victim’s Shtreimel from his head.

Frightened and fearing for his safety, the man ran away immediately. The alleged assault occurred at approximately 7:00 PM on October 20th, as the victim walked through Berkeley Homes in Woodberry Down in Hackney, London. (Stamford Hill)

As the incident took place on Shabbos, the victim did not report it to the police immediately as he was not carrying a cellphone for religious reasons.

Instead he contacted Stamford Hill Shomrim which has reported the incident to the police. Anybody who witnessed the incident, or who has information that could aid the investigation should contact the police by dialing 101, citing CAD7809/28/10/17.
