London Police had investigated the incident as a possible hate crime but there are no charges specific to that. Instead, if the incident is deemed a hate crime, it will be dealt with in sentencing.

"I want to leave; stop assaulting me," the man in the black hoodie says in the video.

"Don't touch him, why are you touching him?" a woman says off-camera, as the man in the red shirt approaches the man in the black hoodie.

"I heard him say he was an illegal immigrant and an alien. I was shocked," said Arden Keet, a witness to the incident at a north London grocery store that has since gone viral.
