The LAPD are searching for a man who attacked three Orthodox Jewish women in North Hollywood by grabbing or attempting to grab the wigs off their heads. Two of the attacks occurred on Yom Kippur, which was on September 19; the third happened on Tuesday.

The incidents are being investigated as hate crimes because the man “battered the women and targeted their wigs because of their religious beliefs,” the LAPD said in a written statement.

Police ask anyone with information to contact Detective Dan Fournier at (818) 754-8451.
