he Met police has made an appeal for help to identify a man following a number of unprovoked assaults in Hackney.
Police have released an image of a man they are seeking after three assaults in the Stamford Hill area.
On Friday police received a third party report of an assault on Stamford Hill at about 8.30pm last Wednesday.
Officers spoke with the 64-year-old victim soon after the report was made.
They established the victim had been making his way to his synagogue when he was struck in a random assault.
He suffered facial injuries and fell to the floor, breaking a bone in his foot. He was taken to hospital for treatment and was later discharged.
The assault is being treated as a hate crime.
Police are linking the incident to two other assaults on the same day.
At 18:40pm a 30-year-old man was struck on the head with a bottle in Cavenove Road N16.
Then at 19:10pm a 14-year-old boy was walking in Holmdale Terrace N15 when he was approached and assaulted without warning.
Both of the victims were also Jewish. Their injuries are not life-threatening.
Officers have also been informed of a fourth victim who has yet to contact police who officers are still seeking.
Anyone who recognises the man, or who witnessed the assault and is yet to speak with officers, is asked to come forward.
Police have asked witnesses call 101 quoting reference 4492/20AUG. To remain anonymous, contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
To report a hate crime, call police on 101, report online or tweet @MetCC. If there is an immediate risk or an emergency situation, always call 999.
