06 Sep Leader of #Harlow Council issues statement following latest attack
Two Polish men have been beaten up by a gang in the same Essex town where one of their compatriots was killed last week in a suspected hate crime.
The two unnamed victims were set on by up to five men during the potential racist attack in Harlow, where Arkadiusz Jozwik, was severely beaten and killed a week earlier.
EssexTV understands that One victim was left with a broken nose and the other with a cut head after the incident outside the town’s William Aylmer pub in the early hours of Sunday.
Councillor Jon Clempner, Leader of Harlow Council, said: “The Council is concerned about any disorder, whatever the motivations for it. The unacceptable behaviours of a tiny minority of people are not representative of the town I know. The perceptions these create are not the reality for the vast majority in Harlow. Harlow is a strong, open and welcoming place, and I know residents will continue to stand together and support each other. Harlow is a good place to live, work and visit for all.
“We are continuing to work with the Police to support the community and to provide reassurance during these difficult times.”
