A Jewish man and child were punched in the face by a man who appeared to be wearing Islamic clothing in separate attacks in London on Wednesday.

In one incident, footage showed a 64-year-old victim being knocked to the ground while he was walking down a street in the Stamford Hill neighborhood.

Neighborhood watch group Shomrim dubbed the incident a “vicious racist attack.”

“The unconscious victim was rushed to hospital with broken foot/ankle and nasty head injuries,” the group added.

The unidentified attacker seen in the footage was also linked to a separate attack earlier that same day.

The man, dressed in a white cloak with a green jacket and a white headdress, could be seen in footage punching a Jewish child, Shomrim stated.

Dashcam footage showed a man striking a young boy while he was riding a bicycle in the same neighborhood. Shomrim claimed the same attacker was responsible for both assaults.

Shomrim added that police detectives were investigating the “series of horrific unprovoked attacks.”

There were no immediate arrests related to the assaults as of Saturday.
