A woman assaulted a Jewish mother and her baby in Paris while shouting anti-Semitic slurs.

In Tuesday’s incident, the assailant shook the stroller belonging to a 27-year-old mother while her 6-month-old baby was inside, according to the Drancy-based National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA. The mother described the attacker as being in her 50s with a European complexion and features, BNVCA said.

The mother said the attacker shouted, “Dirty Jewess, enough with your children already, you Jews have too many children, screw you.”

Identified by BNVCA by her initials, A.M., the mother said the assailant continued to hurl insults at her in front of onlookers at the Faubourg Monmartre bus stop in the 9th arrondissement, a district in central Paris.

BNVCA founder Sammy Ghozlan said the mother has filed a complaint with police and can identify her attacker.

“We ask police to make all the efforts necessary to identify and arrest the attacker,” Ghozlan said.

He added, “The anti-Semitism which persists despite all the measures taken is causing great distress to many Jewish citizens, who are contemplating their future in our country.”

In 2013, the SPCJ, the French Jewish community’s watchdog on anti-Semitism, recorded 423 anti-Semitic incidents, a 31 percent decrease from the number recorded the previous year. However, the 2013 level was still higher by 8 percent than the number recorded in 2011.
