TWO men were hit with baseball bats, wooden sticks and rocks in an anti-Semitic attack in Golders Green.
Three men launched the assault on two brothers on Golders Green Road on Tuesday night.
The victims were left with bruises and cuts to the face and arms as they tried to defend themselves.
Just minutes earlier, at about 9.30pm as the brothers left a restaurant, police say the same attackers racially abused them using anti-Semitic language.
The gang, a white man, a Mediterranean-looking man and an Asian man, all thought to be around 17, escaped towards Brent Street.
Detective Superintendent Richard Walton, Barnet's deputy borough commander, said: "This unprovoked attack was committed by three young men who targeted the victims purely based on their religion."
