Seven arrested in Enfield for hate crimes (UK)

 A police operation to crack down on domestic violence and other hate crime offenders has led to seven arrests in Enfield.

Arrests were made over allegations of racial abuse and common assault and has led to four being charged with crimes.

Operation Athena, which took place on Thursday, is a Met-wide initiative targeting hate crimes which include domestic violence; homophobic, transphobic, race and faith related offences; and offences against disabled people.

Detective Sergeant Chris Kirk, of Enfield Police's community safety unit: "Thursday's arrests form one part of the ongoing commitment we have to tackling hate crime. We hope that when we carry out operations like these that we are encouraging more victims to come forward. We will continue to offer crime prevention advice and dedicated victim support to victims of these offences"
