Man, 28, arrested after five Jewish people attacked on same day in London

DETECTIVES have arrested a man in connection with five allegedly unprovoked assaults against Jewish people– which left a grandfather with facial injuries.

A 28-year-old man has been arrested in suspicion of a string of five hate attacks across North London in broad daylight.

A man allegedly assaulted his five victims within a 24 hour period according to police.

Cops arrested the man on suspicion of five racially aggravated assaults and he remains in custody at an east London police station.

Officers previously released a picture of a man that they wanted to identify in relation to the assaults.

The first incident took place on August 18, when a 30-year-old man was hit on the head with a bottle on Cazenove Road, Stamford Hill at 6.41pm.

He sustained no injuries, with a 14-year-old boy allegedly being attacked without warning while walking on Holmdale Terrace at 7.10pm.

A 64-year-old grandfather was left with facial injuries and a broken foot after being hit in the face and falling to the ground.

He was attacked at around 8.30pm on Stamford Hill, and was taken to hospital for treatment but has since been discharged.

Speaking after the attack, he told ITV News: "I went into deep shock, terrible pain for the first two nights after I heard it was attack.

"Although I didn't see the footage – I was advised not to – I replayed in my mind what I was told happened, as if I saw it. It was nightmarish."

The grandfather added that he is now suffering from memory loss.

Officers are trying to trace the fourth and fifthvictims who are believed to have been attacked.
