A man who was subjected to homophobic abuse by a self-styled “Muslim patrol” in Whitechapel has come forward to police.
The man is now being questioned after police submitted an appeal for him to make himself known to them last week.
It is part of an ongoing investigation into a series of incidents on the weekend of January 12 and 13.
Several videos of vigilantes patrolling the streets of Whitechapel were uploaded to YouTube. In one, shot in Commercial Street, a man is told to: “get out of here you fag… don’t stay around here any more”.
Other videos show passers-by being harassed and told to pour away their alcoholic drinks as the vigilantes tell them to leave the area surrounding the East London Mosque.
A spokesperson said: “The Metropolitan Police Service takes these incidents very seriously and is pursuing various lines of enquiry with a view to identifying and prosecuting the individuals concerned.”
