Police seek two men for hate crime at Tower Hamlets synagogues

Police are appealing for help to identify two men wanted for questioning after anti-Semitic stickers and posters were placed at two synagogues in Tower Hamlets in August

Do you recognise these men? If so contact the police.

On Wednesday, 16 August, the two men were seen apparently placing stickers and posters at the Bevis Marks Synagogue and Sandys Row Synagogue.

Officers from Tower Hamlets are working closely with colleagues from the City of London Police and are providing crime prevention and safety advice to the synagogues.

Suspect One [ref: 261157] is described as white and of medium build. He was wearing a light blue/grey hooded top and jeans. He was also carrying a rucksack.

Suspect Two [ref: 261158] is also described as white and of medium build. He was wearing a black top and light coloured trousers. He was also in possession of a rucksack.

Anyone who recognises either of the men is asked to contact the Community Safety Unit at Tower Hamlets on 0207 230 3300 or via 101.

The MPS would appeal to anyone who witnesses or suffers any hate of any type to immediately report it so that action can quickly be taken and catch those who are responsible.

Hate Crime can be reported through 999 in an emergency, by dialling 101 in a non-emergency, directly at a police station, through the MOPAC Hate Crime app or through community reporting methods such as Tell mama or the CST.
