According to the Stamford Hill based watchdog organization, Shomrim, three men in a pickup truck hurled the steel canisters at two men and a woman shopping in the area.

“Hitler is on the way to you, Heil Hitler, Heil Hitler, Heil Hitler,” was shouted at the group before being pelted by the objects, the organization added.


“The verbal abuse was disgusting, and small objects were thrown towards the victims, making them fear for their immediate safety,” Shomrim volunteer Michael Blayer told The Guardian.



“Shomrim are supporting the victims. The incident has been reported to the Metropolitan police, I have absolute confidence in our local police that this will be thoroughly investigated. I encourage anyone who witnessed this incident or who may have experienced a similar incident to report it,” he added.
