A man reportedly shoved a stroller with a baby inside and called the baby’s family “dirty Jews” in northern London on August 4.

The UK Independent reports that a 30-year-old man identifying himself as Michael said that he was sitting outside a coffee shop in St. Albans with his family when the man “aggressively” shoved the stroller. The man said he did it because the family consisted of “dirty Jews.”

Michael then took the following video, where the man can be seen throwing an advertising billboard at the family and repeating his “dirty Jews” slur:

The police have reportedly identified the suspect in the video.

Michael told the Independent that anti-Semitism is on the rise in the Britain, and he blamed it on Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

“We all know that there is anti-Semitism in one of the largest political parties in the UK and when anti-Semitism is accepted by a leading political figure and not tackled properly it means that people on the street sometimes think they can get away with it,” Michael said.

The Jewish community in Britain as well members of the Labour Party have criticized Corbyn for failing to confront anti-Semitism in his party. Corbyn tweeted on August 7, “A Jewish family was attacked and subjected to anti-Semitic abuse in the street. This is a vile anti-Semitic attack, part of a disturbing rise in antisemitism in the UK and abroad. We must confront this racist bigotry wherever it rears its ugly head.”

StandWithUs Co-Founder and CEO Roz Rothstein tweeted regarding the suspect in the video, “Disgusting guy. Now everyone knows your face. Be ashamed, whoever you are.”
