A man armed with a butcher knife was arrested on Tuesday evening in Britain after he threatened several Jewish people on Rossington Street in North London. According to local police, the suspect is a 61-year-old man.
According to the North East London Shomrim, a volunteer neighborhood watch group in the local Jewish community, the employees at a kosher shop prevented the suspect from entering the store when he attempted to do so. Later, the man entered a different store with the knife and started shouting: “Where is the boss? I will kill him!”

When he realized that the manager was not present, he exited the store and followed two young Jewish girls, threatening to kill them.
