Police appeal after anti-Semitic hate crimes in Edgware

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward following a series of anti-Semitic hate crimes in Edgware.

The incidents took place between 12 and 18 March where Jewish worshippers and a synagogue have been targeted by individuals throwing eggs in the Hale Lane area.

A silver Ford Mondeo car with a number of passengers inside have been throwing the eggs, and whilst no one has been seriously injured, the incidents have been incredibly distressing.

A number of witnesses have already come forward to provide statements and footage of the incidents, but police are keen to hear from anyone else who can assist their investigation.

A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated assault – he has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information that could assist police is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD7772/12Mar. You can also provide information anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
