Police in Tottenham need your help identifying a man who pulled down a woman’s hijab on a busy street last month.
An e-fit image has been created following the victim’s description of the attacker, who approached her and her friend on High Road at around 7.30pm on Wednesday 28th September.
Two men approached her as she was near the College of Haringey, Enfield & North East London, and one pulled down the hijab before running away.
The first suspect is described as: “a white man, aged in his late 20s or early 30s, with blond or ginger shaved hair and stubble.
“He was approximately 5ft 6ins tall and was wearing a burgundy coloured hooded top and carrying a Tesco bag in his right hand.”
The second suspect is: “aged in his late 20s or early 30s, clean shaven with spiky hair. He was wearing a grey hooded top.”
Police asked for anyone with information to come forward.
“This was a shocking attack in broad daylight in the middle of a busy street. Racially and religiously motivated crimes will not be tolerated,” said Detective Constable Ben Cousin, of Haringey Community Safety Unit.
“The victim has given us a good description of the two suspects and from this we have been able to generate an e-fit of one of the suspects. I would appeal to anyone who recognises the man or anyone who witnessed the incident to please come forward and speak to us.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Haringey Police via 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
