Police release CCTV image after hate crime assault

Police are appealing for help to trace a man who is wanted in connection with a hate crime in Camden.

At approximately 7:35pm on Thursday, 2 December, police were called to reports of a racially aggravated assault outside West Hampstead Overground station on Heritage Lane, NW6.

The victim – a man aged in his 20s – was approached by the suspect who made anti-Semitic comments; he also damaged a display that had been erected to celebrate the festival of Chanukah.

The suspect then assaulted the victim whilst intimating he was in possession of a knife before leaving the scene. The victim was not seriously injured.

Officers have carried out a number of enquiries and have today released a CCTV image of a man they need to speak with.

[Do you recognise this man?]

Anyone who recognises the man is asked to call police via 101 quoting reference CAD 6588/02Dec.
