Man filmed hurling sickening abuse at Charedi family on London bus

Abuser can be heard saying, ‘You think you own this country?’


Footage has emerged of an umasked man hurling abuse at Charedi passengers on a north London bus this week. 
The video was first shared by Shomrim’s Stamford Hill branch on Monday. 
"You think can come over here and f**k with us English people,” he can be heard saying in the clip. “You think you own this country?” 
Metropolitan Police officers were made aware on Monday of a video clip of a racially aggravated incident on a bus near Manor House at around 12.45pm, a spokesperson said Wednesday.

The incident was passed to the force’s roads and transport policing command to investigate. 
“We take all forms of hate crime seriously whether that be a crime based on a person’s race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or prejudice against a person who is transgender,” said Hackney Superintendent Andy Port.
“We deplore any form or hate crime and will do everything in our power to bring to justice those responsible.”
Tell Mama UK, a group which monitors Islamophobic incidents, said it extended its “solidarity and support to the victims and all those impacted.”
“Absolutely horrendous to see,” it said about the incident. 
Anyone with information is asked to contact 101 quoting CAD 5662/8Feb or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
