A London man was arrested on September 2 over a recent spate of antisemitic assaults.

Metropolitan Police have identified the man as Abdullah Qureshi, 28. Qureshi is suspected of perpetrating five attacks against Jews over the past couple of weeks, including a 14-year-old boy and a 64-year-old man. The 64-year-old man suffered from a broken nose and foot.

He will appear in court on September 4 on four counts of racially or religiously aggravated common assault, one count of racially or religiously aggravated wounding or grievous bodily harm and one count of racially or religiously aggravated criminal damage.

The Anti-Defamation League tweeted, “After the serial attacks in London two weeks ago, police have arrested the alleged attacker. We’re glad and relieved to see the police act swiftly.”

 

London Mayor Sadiq Khan had condemned the attack on the 64-year-old.

“Let me be clear, racist abuse and hate crime, including anti-Semitism, have absolutely no place in our city,” he tweeted on August 23.
