UK: Disabled man in Islamophobic attack on London bus

LONDON (AA):  An investigation into an Islamophobic attack on a disabled man thought to be of Turkish origin is underway in London, police said Monday.

Video that appeared online on Sunday appeared to show the man being verbally abused by a black man on the bottom deck of a London bus.

The attacker is then seen throwing the passenger’s walking frame from the double-decker bus.

The attack took place in Tottenham, an area of north London with a significant ethnic Turkish population, on Saturday.

“This video footage – which includes racist and Islamophobic abuse – has been brought to the attention of the [police],” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

It added: “Detectives are working to establish precisely when and where the footage was taken.”

The three-minute-long video, which appeared on the 5Pillars website, showed the assailant shouting at a man on the bus.

“Nobody understands you! Go back to Turkey and talk that s… That’s why you are here! F… free benefits on a walker,” the suspect is heard saying.

The video then shows the man throwing the walker – seemingly belonging to the victim – from the bus before leaving the bus with a child’s buggy.

Another video that appeared online last week showed two Muslim women, one of whom was pregnant, being verbally abused in an allegedly Islamophobic attack by another woman on a bus.

A woman has since been charged with a racially or religiously aggravated public order offense over the Oct. 13 incident.
