Police launch hate crime investigations after CCTV catches brutal assault of Jewish woman

British police are investigating a possible hate crime after a video of the assault was shared online by a neighborhood watch group.

The Jewish security organization Shomrim released a video of the incident on X. The footage shows a woman being dragged to the ground and beaten, before a bystander eventually intervenes to check on her.
