The man repeated the phrase multiple times.

Though the family wished to remain anonymous the father stated that all his six children began crying during the attack. The children vary in age from six-weeks to ten-years-old.

Shomrim, which works in Jewish communities similar to a neighborhood watch, was working to support the family. They have posted the video on twitter, bringing attention to the event.

A spokesman for the Scotland Yard stated that they are investigating the incident.

London saw a 61 percent increase in anti-Semitic attacks in 2015, according to The Independent.
