UK: Boy avoids going outside after being beaten up and called a ‘stupid Jew' in one of 32 anti-Semitic attacks in north London in one month

Via The Daily Mail:
The father of an eight-year-old boy who was beaten up on his way home and called a ‘stupid Jew’ has said his son avoids going outside after the attack. 
When the child does leave the house, he ‘looks over his shoulder’ due to his continued trauma following the assault near Stamford Hill, north London. 
It was among 32 anti-Semitic attacks on Orthodox Charedi Jews in the area over one month that London Mayor Sadiq Khan has said he will ‘urgently’ investigate. 
Others, recorded by Jewish community group Stamford Hill Shomrim, included a boy, 11, who was threatened with violence if he did not remove his skullcap. 
The father of the eight-year-old told MailOnline: ‘He was very upset and shaken by the experience. 
‘He keeps looking over his shoulder whenever he’s out and about, he regularly tries to avoid going outside, and he feels insecure.’ (...)
A 55-year-old Jewish woman was asked, while praying, if she covered her hair on her head because Hitler had shaved it off – the thug then made a Nazi salute. 
Three terrified Jewish women were chased by yobs shouting ‘The Jewish people are rich, horrible Jewish people, give us your money’.
