A racially motivated attack by a man with a machete and a hammer who yelled “white power’ inside a Tesco supermarket against a Sikh shopper.
The 25 year old white male is charged of attempt to murder a 24 year old Sikh man who suffered life threatening injuries but was saved after other shoppers came to his rescue by over powering the attacker.
The police questioned the man and are determining whether he acted alone or was involved with a wider group. The Sikh was probably mistakenly identified by the attacker as a man from the middle east and the police has confirmed it as a racially motivated assault.
The eyewitnesses have stated the knife used by the attacker was extremely large and they saw the Sikh man yelling and holding his stomach.
After a shopper named Rich Fay heard screams he saw that the man had a knife in one hand and a hammer in the other.
The suspect was a known person by the police who’ve stated the attack was racially motivated and there are concerns he is involved with a far right radical group.
The man has been identified as Zack Davis who attack Sarandev Brahambra and was left with major injuries with cuts on his left hand, back and back of his head.
Eyewitnesses saw the Sikh man wrapped up with bandages as he left the supermarket.
The attacker continuously yelled “White Power” and it’s been now confirmed that it was a racially motivated incident.
