Police release image of man sought after alleged antisemitic assault in Kingsbury

Police are appealing for information following an alleged antisemitic attack in Kingsbury.

On Friday, 13 October 2023, a man reported he had been assaulted while on Kingsbury Road, NW9.

He told officers that a group of men had approached him and asked whether he was Jewish. He then moved away and attempted to take a photo of the group which prompted one of them to return and punch him in the face.

Met Police have now released an image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the alleged attack.

PC Catherine Brady, leading the investigation, said: “This assault left the victim incredibly shaken and we know it has caused concern within the wider community.

“Hate crime of any kind is not something we tolerate and we have been carrying out enquiries to establish who is responsible for this offence.

“Anyone who recognises the man in this photo or has any other information about the incident should call 101 with reference 4001/13OCT23.”

You can also provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
