Man jailed for hurling antisemitic abuse
A 31-year-old Jewish man reported verbal abuse after a suspect in a van shouted
antisemitic comments at him – including references to Adolf Hitler. A number of
objects [small gas canisters for balloons] also thrown at him. Three other
people reported suffering similar abuse.
Patrick Joseph Delaney, from Braintree, Essex, was sentenced to six
months’ imprisonment at Wood Green Crown Court after pleading guilty to a
religiously aggravated public order offence.
The case against two co-defendants charged in relation to this incident
was subsequently dismissed.
