Two teenagers have been arrested after a senior rabbi was beaten during an anti-Semitic attack in north London.
Attackers shouted "F*** Jews", "Dirty Jew" and "Kill the Jews" at the religious leader as he walked through Stamford Hill at around 9.45pm on November 29.
On Monday, Scotland Yard released CCTV images of two suspects and the force has now said a 14-year-old and 15-year-old have handed themselves in during the early hours of Tuesday.
The pair presented themselves to an east London police station after being recognised by a relative from the police images, the force said.
The two suspects are currently being held in custody.
The victim, who has not been named, had travelled to the UK from Israel to attend a wedding and has since returned home.
Jewish neighbourhood patrol Shomrim said he had left the Bobov Synagogue in Egerton Road and was walking along Clapton Common when he was assaulted.
The two attackers repeatedly punched him, threw him to the ground and carried on beating him, only stopping when a member of the public intervened.
Shomrim said the rabbi, who sits in a Judaic court as a judge, was left “collapsed on the pavement, bleeding and dazed where he lay for several minutes”.
Fellow rabbi Herschel Gluck said the victim was left “bruised and traumatised” by his ordeal.
Detective Superintendent Adam Ghaboos, from the Met’s Central East Basic Command Unit, said: “Communities and local residents have such an important part to play in helping to keep London safe and we often rely on their support and intelligence in helping us bring perpetrators to justice.”
He said those concerned about contacting police, particularly concerning a family member’s involvement, should call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
