Four Attacks on Jews Now Linked to Suspect Still Wanted by London Police

London Metropolitan Police police said Tuesday that as many as four unprovoked attacks against Jews were perpetrated within a matter of hours by the same suspect, who remains at large.

In the first incident reported to police, a 64-year-old Orthodox Jewish victim was on his way to synagogue before being struck by the unidentified man at around 8:30 pm on August 18. The victim was knocked to the ground, and was hospitalized with facial injuries and a broken foot.

Police said Tuesday they are linking at least two other incidents to the same man, who was dressed in traditional Muslim garb.
