It was one of three alleged assaults by the man in Ruislip on February 2. Two people were allegedly punched in the head with one suffering cuts and bruising to her face.
Police arrested a man, believed to be in his late 20s, on suspicion of grievous bodily harm. He has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
His alleged victims received hospital treatment.
It is thought the man travelled to Ruislip by train. He is said to have walked to nearby bus stands and started throwing punches at a male bus driver before fleeing to Pembroke Road, where he allegedly assaulted a woman in her 40s on the street, striking her head against street railings and leaving her unconscious.
Next, the suspect is said to have appeared at the nearby Jameson Court, retirement home and assaulted a woman, thought to be in her 30s.
She received bruising and cuts from punches he is said to have landed on her.
It was at this scene that police apprehended and arrested the man, shortly after 10.30am. He had allegedly used anti- Semitic language to the three victims and to officers who detained him. The circumstances are under investigation by the police community support unit at Hillingdon.
