London police probe alleged attempted kidnapping of Haredi man in Stamford Hill

A clip shared on social media appears to show two men attempting to force an ultra-Orthodox man into the trunk of their car in North London.

The local Jewish neighborhood watch group, Shomrim, shares the footage from the Friday incident on social media, noting that London’s Metropolitan Police is looking for leads.

The video shows the car pull over on a street North London’s Stamford Hill — an area with a large Haredi community — next to the man, as two men jump out.

One of the men lunges threateningly at the victim, apparently demanding that he get in the car, while the other opens the trunk.

When the would-be kidnap victim quickly threatens to use his cellphone to call the police, and as other vehicles approached, the men get in their car and drive away.

Local police writes on X, formerly Twitter, that an investigation into the alleged antisemitic incident has been opened.
