Police are investigating a spate of anti-Semitic attacks in London over the weekend in which a brick daubed with swastikas was thrown through a window of a Jewish home and a Jewish woman was pelted with eggs.
According to the Evening Standard, Scotland Yard is probing four separate alleged hate-crimes in Barnet, north London, which were reported over the weekend.
A brick daubed with swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs was hurled through the window of a family home in Edgware in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Just hours earlier late on Friday night, a Jewish woman was pelted with eggs as she made her way home from a dinner with friends in Edgwarebury Lane.
Police are also investigating the discovery of a swastika on a property in the same area. And in a fourth incident, anti-Semitic graffiti was found painted on a bin belonging to a Jewish company.
Gary Ost, chief executive of Shomrim North West London, a community neighbourhood patrol, said: “Theses cowardly anti-Semitic attacks targeted Jews when they were asleep in their homes or walking with their families after dinner.
“These attacks are intended to instil fear in London’s Jews. The best response to these disgusting acts is to ensure that the perpetrators are caught.”
Insp Justin Zitver, from the Met Police, said: “Whilst there is no evidence at this stage to suggest that these offences are linked, it is of great concern that members of our local community are being targeted in this way.”
