Antisemitic attack on elderly man at Highbury Corner in broad daylight
London – An elderly man was left with ‘blood pouring from his mouth’ in a brutal ‘antisemitic attack’ in broad daylight.
Passersby were left horrified after a racist thug targeted the defenceless pensioner in Islington, London at around 2.15pm today.
The pensioner, said to be in his 70s and holding a walking stick, was set upon by the attacker at Highbury Corner, witnesses claim.
The violent man, described as having a shaved head, repeatedly punched him in the face as he lay bleeding on the ground, a witness said.
The attack is said to have been completely unprovoked.
Now an appeal has been launched to find the attacker who is described as being in his 30s and with a strong build.
He was seen wearing a checked shirt and overcoat running away from the scene shortly after the attack.
