Jewish man punched in face and left unconscious in racist attack on video

A Jewish man was taken to hospital after a vicious racist attack left him unconscious in London.

Footage shows the 64-year-old was punched in the face by a stranger while walking in broad daylight down a street in Stamford Hill at 8.30pm on Wednesday.

The video appears to show the man hitting his head against a wall with the force of the punch as he falls.

The man in Orthodox Jewish dress suffered a broken ankle and head injuries in the suspected Anti-Semitic attack.

Shomrim tweeted: “Shocking footage of a vicious racist attack.

“The unconscious victim was rushed to hospital with a broken foot/ankle & nasty head injuries.

“@MPSHackney specialist hate crime officers are keen to speak to this male.”

A separate video from that same evening allegedly showed a Jewish child being punched in the face less than a mile away on Holmdale Terrace.

Dashcam footage taken at 7.10pm appears to show a similar-looking attacker hitting a boy on a bicycle.

As the car pulled into a side street, the closer angle seems to show the attacker holding a bottle in his right hand.
