British Transport Police were contacted on 4 July after a North London investigator known only as Yosef was subjected to “anti-Semitic behaviour” while traveling through the station.

Earlier that evening, in a separate incident under investigation by the Metropolitan Police, Josef was on a bus heading to the station when he was the victim of a “torrent of anti-Semitic abuse” and “threats” by another passenger.

The Met renewed its call for information regarding the bus incident, which happened around 11:33 p.m. on July 3 earlier this week.

Police have released an image of a man they are seeking to identify in connection with the incident.

No arrests have been made.
