London police probe assault, attempted suffocation of pregnant Jewish woman – The Times of Israel

UK police on Sunday opened an investigation into the assault of a pregnant Jewish woman in London’s predominantly Haredi neighborhood of Stamford Hill.

Footage of the Thursday incident distributed by the Shomrim local patrol force shows the assailant following the victim through a gated alley before throwing a black bag over her head.

The man managed to deliver three punches to the woman’s torso and arm before fleeing the scene.

The woman in her 20s was 27 weeks pregnant, according to Shomrim. She was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated for light injuries.

The Orthodox volunteer patrol service said Jewish women in the community have experienced an uptick in such attacks, with five taking place in the last month alone, though Thursday’s assault was the most severe.

Police have not yet arrested anyone in connection with the attack.
