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.
