Police are investigating after a man “unprovokedly threatened a family” with anti-Semitic  abuse in Stamford Hill.

The police told Jewish News they were called at 7pm on Sunday 22 May following  “numerous calls to a man climbing into back gardens and shouting random remarks.”

They added that “It was reported that some of the comments were of an anti-Semitic nature.”

Neighbourhood watch group Shomrim claimed a white male shouted: “Jews, move away, move away your children, a bomb is coming”, in the area with a large Strictly-Orthodox community.

An investigation has been launched, with Shomrim describing the suspect as having “a metal bar & stick in his hand.. wearing dark Grey short sleeve T-Shirt, blue trousers, shaved head.”

The incident happens at Queen Elizabeth Walk, N16.
