Met Police distance Spurs Stadium vandalism from Anti-Semitism as man named

By The Boy -

Amid marches and demonstrations in parts of the United Kingdom in respect of the atrocities committed in Israel and specifically the Gaza Strip, there has also been an attack on the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

The full extent of the vandalism appears significant with the cost of the damages will run into at least six figures according to reports.

One Spurs fan posted on X, formerly Twitter, about the attack.

The Metropolitan Police took the opportunity to immediately deny that there was any link between the damage and anti-Semitism.

Numerous replies on the thread indicated surprise at the cops taking the step of wading into the dialogue with a private individual, who in fact had not made any suggestion as to the motivation of the crime.

On Monday, October 9 at 7.20 pm officers were called to a report of a man causing criminal damage at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Tottenham. Officers attended the scene and arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of causing criminal damage.

London World named Charlie Chart, 30, of Fairview Close, was charged with causing criminal damage, and appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, October 11. At this stage, the specific nature of the damage to the Tottenham Experience has not been made public.

There has been a spike in reported incidents of antisemitism in Britain with police telling Reuters that 105 reports of antisemitic incidents and 75 antisemitic offences between Sept. 29 and Oct. 12, compared with 14 incidents and 12 offences in the same period a year ago, which is distressing news.

Whilst it is a relief that the attack was not linked, one would hope the individual concerned has the book thrown at him.
