Egg throwing in Golders Green and Hendon

15 Dec 2011 by CST

Over the past few weeks on Friday nights, members of the Jewish community walking on Golders Green Road and Brent Street have had eggs thrown at them from a passing car. Several incidents of this nature have been reported to CST, but the true number of incidents is likely to be far higher. Colindale Police, Safer Neighbourhood Teams and CST are appealing for help in order to catch those responsible.

Following discussions with CST, Golders Green Safer Neighbourhood Team will now be looking to provide additional high visibility patrols on Friday nights in the area and anyone who witnesses such egg throwing or other types of antisemitic abuse should speak to the Police or CST as soon as possible. Both the Police and CST stress that incidents need to be reported so that proper investigations can be made; unless these incidents are reported, the police are not able to take action.

Passing Police patrols should be stopped and spoken with, or after Shabbos, either Colindale Police (020 8200 1212), the general police non-emergency line (101) or CST (020 8457 9999) should be telephoned. In an emergency always dial the police on 999. Alternatively, incidents can be reported quickly and easily online, to CST at www.thecst.org.uk or to the Police at met.police.uk.

“Since 2003, CST has been a stalwart supporter of ODIHR in its efforts to effectively monitor antisemitic hate crime in the OSCE Region. With its rigorous methodology and innovative partnerships with the British police, it is viewed by many as representing the gold standard for NGO responses to all forms of hate crime. I wish CST all success in its exciting new phase of work.”
