Two Orthodox jewish teenagers were verbally attacked in London on Monday.

The pair, one aged 14 and the other 17, were walking in the Stamford Hill neighborhood when a strange man came at them yelling "Allah Akbar! F---ing Jews! Kill the Jews!"

Though the assailant did not physically harm the two, he remained in the area and yelled anti-Semitic remarks to other passers-by. The two teens quickly called Shomrim, the local Jewish neighborhood watch organization, for help.

Police officers arrested the man for disturbing the public order with racially aggravating circumstances. He has not been identified and is only described as being 23 years old.

Chaim Hochhauser, a member of the Shomrim, says, "Anti Semitism and all types of hate crime are unacceptable. I urge victims and witnesses to report such incidents immediately. Such incidents should never be accepted as the norm, no matter how regularly these incidents sadly happen."
