Police have released an image of a man they are seeking after three assaults.
Officers said a man had been making his way to his synagogue about 8.30pm last Wednesday when “he was struck in a random assault”. The brutal assault can be seen on CCTV released by police.
The man suffered facial injuries and fell to the ground, breaking his foot. He was taken to hospital for treatment and later discharged.
The assault is being treated as a hate crime.
Police are now linking the incident to two other assaults on the same day.
At 6.40pm a 30-year-old man was struck on the head with a bottle in Cavenove Road N16.
Officers investigating an assault in Stamford Hill want to identify the man in this photo.

Then at 7.10pm a 14-year-old boy was walking in Holmdale Terrace N15 when he was approached and assaulted without warning.

Officers have also been informed of a fourth victim who has yet to contact police who officers are still seeking.
