London police say investigating if brutal beating of Jewish woman is hate crime

London police say they are investigating whether a brutal attack on a Jewish woman was a hate crime.

The woman was violently assaulted and robbed in Haringey on Thursday.

“This was a shocking incident and we are supporting the victim who is understandably distressed,” the Metropolitan Police say. “Officers take any suggestion of hate crime incredibly seriously and our investigation will include a thorough assessment of the motive for the attack.”

Video of the attack was widely circulated on social media.

The Shomrim security organization said that the two attackers kicked the unconscious victim in the head, and laughed that she was “dead.”
