A 24-year-old man has been released on bail after he was arrested for allegedly punching an Orthodox man in the head.

Officers were called to Stamford Hill in north London shortly before 11pm on Saturday following reports of an attack.

It is alleged that the attacker punched the back of the victim’s head, knocking his hat and kippah off before shouting racist abuse.

Police said the abuse made reference to Israel.

The man was questioned on suspicion of racially aggravated assault and bailed to return to Holborn police station on January 21. Police are continuing their enquiries.

  1. “The man was questioned on suspicion of racially aggravated assault and bailed to return to Holborn police station on January 21. Police are continuing their enquiries.”

    what a joke- just a suspicion?? maybe he just punched him because he had a twitch?

  2. Hey Shtickle – Calm down. “suspicion of…” is the correct legal terminology upon arrest. It’s no different than referring to the Arizona shooter as the “alleged shooter” when discusing his arrst and the charges against him…which is how it is being referred to in press reports.
