‘Get out of the city’: Jewish students assaulted at London Underground station

UK transit police call on the British public to come forward with any information about an assault on a group of Jewish school students at an Underground station in London.

A mother of one of the students tells The Jewish News that prior to the assault at Belsize Park, they faced antisemitic abuse from a group that’s harassed them before.

“They ran ahead of my son and kicked one of his friends to the ground. They were trying to push another kid onto the tracks. They got him as far the yellow line. I’m not sure how he managed to get away,” the unnamed mother says. “My son ran a few steps up to try and get help. They ran after him, he was elbowed in the cheek and he hit his head against the wall. They dislodged a tooth and shouted ‘Get out of the city Jew!’”

The incident is condemned by Mayor Sadiq Khan, who says, “antisemitism has no place on the streets of London.”
