( Jews in northern London were pelted with gas canisters and verbally attacked on Wednesday by men who told them "Hitler is on the way," The Guardian reported. 

In the incident, three men threw steel canisters from a pickup truck at two Jewish men and one Jewish woman who were shopping in the Tottenham Hale area, according to the London-based Jewish watchdog group Shomrim.

“Hitler is on the way to you, Heil Hitler, Heil Hitler, Heil Hitler,” the attackers shouted, Shomrim said.

“The verbal abuse was disgusting, and small objects were thrown towards the victims, making them fear for their immediate safety,” said Shomrim volunteer Michael Blayer.

Shomrim is supporting the victims and the incident has been reported to the Metropolitan Police [of London],” added Blayer. 

I have absolute confidence in our local police that this will be thoroughly investigated. I encourage anyone who witnessed this incident or who may have experienced a similar incident to report it,” he said.
