A man has been found guilty of carrying out antisemitic attacks on three Jews after travelling to north London from West Yorkshire.

Jon D. Young's targets included a 14-year-old boy on his way to school and a 64-year-old man, who was knocked out as he made his way to the synagogue.

The 60-year-old also hit a teacher in the head with a plastic bottle as he carried out the attacks over a two-hour period last August 18 in the Stamford Hill area, which is known for its orthodox Jew population.

Young claimed “it was just a coincidence” his three victims were all wearing traditional orthodox Jewish clothing and said he lashed out after becoming “angrier and angrier” following a row in a shop.
But prosecutor Varinder Hayre suggested to Young he travelled from his home in Dewsbury to target Jews because “you hate them”.

Young has prior convictions for paedophilia and drug offences.
