Police are investigating after an autistic schoolgirl was pelted with eggs outside her school.

The 13 year old, who attends a specialist Jewish school in Bakers Hill, London, is said to have been left “completely traumatised.”

CCTV showed youths on bicycles apparently loitering in wait, throwing the egg and then cycling away before anybody could intervene. The girl immediately ran into the school. Whilst the youths reportedly did not shout any antisemitic slurs, it appeared they were directly targeting the Jewish school.

Stamford Hill Shomrim, a Jewish volunteer neighbourhood watch patrol, has reported numerous incidents in which Jews were pelted with eggs.

Anybody with information should contact the police on 101, or Stamford Hill Shomrim on 0300 999 0123.
