Two Jewish girls were attacked with a glass bottle by a man who yelled: “Hitler is a good man.”

The teenagers ran for cover after they were approached by the young man who continued his anti-Semitic tirade, shouting it was “good he killed the Jews”.

The suspect then threw a bottle at one of the girls in what police described as an unprovoked attack.

Officers are now appealing for anyone who saw what happened to come forward after the incident in Finsbury Park on Sunday.

According to the Met, the two girls, aged 15 and 16, have been left “badly shaken” by the abuse.

It happened at around 7pm on Heron Drive. The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man in his early twenties, with a slim build.

He was wearing a black t-shirt, black trousers and wearing a black cross body bag.

In July new research suggested hate offences against Jewish victims surged for the third consecutive year in 2016.

It prompted a warning that Jewish people are facing intolerable levels of hate crime.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 111 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. You can also tweet information to police @MetCC.
