Elderly Man Beat Up And Robbed By 2 ‘Asian’ Thugs In Wycombe

Yet another spineless attack by ‘religion of peace’ members against somebody unable to defend themselves against the cowardly attack. Bashing old people doesn’t make you big and hard, it is something that even a pair of 12 year olds are capable of doing if they wanted to. But even children have more about them to know that it is very wrong and something only the lowest  filth in our society would do.

Incidents like this unfortunately are on the increase as the UK imports more and more  migrants from third world Muslim nations. Gradually turning the country into the backwards lawless lands they left.

 

An elderly man was kicked and then had his wallet stolen from him in an attack on Marlow Road, High Wycombe.

The 65-year-old was walking along the road on Monday (January 16) at around 7pm when he was approached from behind by two men.
One of the robbers reached for the man’s coat pockets and then the two men proceeded to kick the him, causing him to fall.

They then stole his wallet and ran away down Marlow Road towards the petrol station.

The victim was injured but did not require hospital treatment.

The first offender is described as Asian, between 25 and 26 years old, with a slim build and short black hair. He is described as wearing blue jeans and a short black jacket.

The second offender is also described as Asian, in his mid twenties, with a slim build and was also wearing blue jeans and a black jacket.

PC Jonathan Harland, from High Wycombe police station, said: “This was an unprovoked and very frightening incident for the victim.

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident, or who has any information relating to it, to come forward and contact Thames Valley Police on the non-emergency number 101.”

If you do not want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.

This is the third time a man was robbed in High Wycombe by two men described as Asian this week.
Two robbers approached a pedestrian on Priory Avenue and threatened him with a knife, who handed over his mobile phone and money on Wednesday (January 18).

And on Tuesday (Jan 17) a man was attacked and then robbed of his mobile phone in Rye Park.

There is no suggestion the crimes are linked, however.

Birmingham Hate Crime: British Schoolboy Attacked And Thrown In Canal By 3 ‘Asian’ Bullies

Yet another Muslim committed hate attack. Three bullies from the religion of peace have pack attacked a white British schoolboy recovering from major surgery and thrown him in the canal. Typical cowardly behaviour from the spineless Muslim scumbags. Picking on a soft target  who they outnumber and cant defend himself. I hope this incident is being treated as attempted murder by the police. As it could quite possibly have been a murder if the victim couldn’t swim.

A teenager who’s been recovering from brain surgery was allegedly attacked, robbed and then thrown into a canal by three men in Digbeth.

Jack Lloyd was meeting a friend to celebrate his birthday when he was attacked on a canal towpath, shortly after 3pm on Sunday 4th September.

The school pupil from Edgbaston was still recovering after receiving six hours of brain surgery at Birmingham Children’s Hospital back in July.

According to Police the three men began talking to him as he was walking along the towpath and then carried out a vicious attack.

He was left with cuts and bruises from the attack and they also took his mobile phone, credit card and bus pass.

West Midlands Police is currently investigating the attack and is appealing for witnesses or people with information to get in touch.

The three men police are keen to speak to in connection with the incident are described as Asian and around 20 years of age.

82 Year Old Injured By 4 Muslim Scumbags During Street Robbery

Another disgusting pack attack on a pensioner after an 82 year old man was left injured following an attempted mugging by four Islamic thugs in Peterborough. There is absolutely no low that they will not sink to!!

In Britain we are brought up to show respect to old people, protecting and helping them where possible. The same goes for women and children. Anybody with any decency would not even consider acting in a violent way towards them because they are most vulnerable. It is that same vulnerability that also makes them a target to spineless Muslim thugs who prey on society’s weakest infidels who cant put up a fight back. They are bullies !!

Man (82) is robbed by cowardly gang of four

editorial image

Police have renewed appeals for information after an elderly man was left battered and bruised by a gang of youths on a Peterborough street.

The 82-year-old Peterborough man was walking through the cut-through between Nottingham Way and Barkston Drive, in Dogsthorpe at 7pm on April when the gang of four youths assaulted him.

The pensioner, who lived nearby was left with cuts and severe bruising to his arms and chest in the attack, while the attackers ran away from the scene.

Now detectives have issued CCTV images of a group of youths they want to speak to in connection with the incident. Detective Constable Pete Wise, said the elderly man had been left ‘injured and frightened.’

He said: “This cowardly and unprovoked attack has left its elderly victim injured and frightened.

“I urge anyone with any information to come forward.”

Four young men, aged between 16 to 20, approached the victim and asked him for the time.

As he gave them the time, they threatened to beat him up unless he handed his wallet over.

The victim took his wallet out and threw it over a fence into a neighbouring garden, at which point the suspects ran off.

As they did, they barged in to him, causing cuts and severe bruising.

Park Ward councillor John Peach said he would be raising the issue with neighbourhood police officers at the next panel meeting.

He said: “I know the victim involved, and this was very traumatic for him.

“Whilst this sort of thing is only a rare occurrence, we do need the police to get to the bottom of this.

“It is something that I will be raising at the next police panel meeting, and asking if the area can be made a local policing priority.

“We don’t want people to have a fear of crime in this area.”

The group of young men are all described as being of Asian appearance and around 5’7” tall.

Officers are keen to speak to the people shown in the CCTV image in relation to the incident.

Video: Muslim Gang Pack Attack Couple- England 2015

A cowardly pack attack by a gang of Muslim thugs against a couple caught on video(below). Like a pack of wild animals they attack the couple which at one point you can clearly see the female getting knocked to the floor by one of the Muslim bullies. The male also ends up on the floor where he is subjected to a barrage of kicks and punches from several attackers.

The pack attack took place in the daytime in full view of women and children.

Woman Threatened With Knife By Two ‘Asian’ Scroates In Preston

Threatening and attacking women (as well as children, OAPS, disabled people) is becoming standard behaviour these days by members of ‘the religion of peace’. They target the weakest in society because they are spineless cowards with no morales what so ever.

Woman threatened with knife on her way home

A 29-year-old woman was attacked on her way home from buying groceries in Preston.

Police said it happened at around 11pm on Monday on Ripon Street near to Garstang Road, Preston.

It is believed that two men approached the woman and demanded that she hand over her handbag but she refused.

The attackers then pulled her to the ground and one of them threatened her with a knife.

A passer-by shouted out to the attackers who then ran off and dropped the victim’s bag which has since been recovered.

The two attackers made off on foot in the direction of Moor Park. The victim was left with cuts and grazes to her face, arms and legs.

Officers are keen to trace the man who intervened and are appealing for him to come forward as they believe he may hold vital information about the incident. He is described as a tall white male.

The two offenders are both described as Asian men.

The first offender is believed to be aged around 26 to 28 years old, around 5ft 6in tall, of medium build and spoke with a local accent.

He was wearing a dark duffle-type jacket, black tracksuit bottoms, a black woollen hat and gloves.

The second offender was slightly taller than the first and of a stocky build. He had a goatee style beard and was dressed in black clothing.

DC Steve Gilmore of Preston CID said: “This was a vicious and nasty attack on a young woman and we would urge anyone with any information at all to please come forward. We are particularly keen to talk to the man who ran over and managed to scare off the attackers and we would encourage him to come forward.”

Anyone with information about the burglary or about the offenders can contact Preston Police on 101 quoting log reference 332 of December 8

Pregnant Teen Pack Attacked Outside Her Home In Luton

Another daytime pack attack only this time the victim is not an old man or somebody disabled. The easy target was a teenage girl who is pregnant. The attack happened in Luton on October 31st out side the girls house. Why the police have waited till now appeal is a joke. Maybe they hope anybody who saw anything has forgot by now. So they don’t have to arrest any Muslims and bring any more negative attention on them in the interest of community cohesion. With just a token appeal just so they can say they did appeal for info but nothing has come of it.

The vermin responsible need exterminating ,they are oxygen thieves

Pregnant woman assaulted after leaving her house in Rudyard Court, Luton

By LutonOnSunday | Posted: November 17, 2014

POLICE are seeking information after an 18-year-old pregnant Luton woman was attacked by four men after leaving her home in Rudyard Court.

Bedfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after the woman was pulled to the ground and kicked numerous times by a group of four men outside her home on Friday October 31st.

The assault happened in Rudyard Court, Luton, sometime between 2.40pm and 3.10pm when the victim was making her way home.

She saw four men smoking near to her front door but as she walked past, one of the men grabbed her hair and pulled her to the floor.

All four men then started kicking the victim in the stomach and laughing at her.

At this point, a member of the public driving a silver car – possibly a Ford Fiesta – came to the victim’s aid and the offenders fled.

The Good Samaritan then drove the victim to Luton Police Station.

The victim was left with severe pains in her stomach and was taken to Luton and Dunstable Hospital for a check-up where it was confirmed that her baby was safe and well.

PC Paul Harris, who is investigating the incident, is keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the assault and may have witnessed the attack.

He is also keen to track down the Good Samaritan who may hold valuable information about the attackers who were all Asian men and in their late teens or early 20s. One of the men was wearing a black top and grey jogging bottoms.

Wheelchair Bound Man Savagely Attacked By ‘Asian’ Scrotes

A disabled man, confined to a wheelchair was the victim of a savage hate crime attack in a South Wales street. James Rees was targeted by a car driver who called him a cripple and  threatened him. Shortly after the altercation with the car driver the disabled man was violently attacked by two low life bullies who punched,kicked and tried to pull the defenceless man from his wheelchair. No surprises to hear that the scum who attacked him were described as ‘Asian’

Muslims have no morales what so ever. They prey on those most vulnerable in our society picking the easy targets. Disabled people, women, the elderly, children or those they heavily outnumber. Violence comes as second nature to Muslims. No doubt those responsible for this will think the are some kind of big men now…well i’v news for them…..they aren’t hard or clever…..they are vermin, the lowest of the low, no more than cowardly bulling scum

Thugs attack man in wheelchair, kicking stump of right leg and trying to drag him to the floor in Penlan

James Rees lost part of his right leg after a motorbike accident last year and said that he was kicked on it a number of times.

A WHEELCHAIR-BOUND man claims he is living in fear after being threatened by one man and then attacked by two others.

The trouble began at around 9.30pm last Sunday after Mr Rees, aged 28, of Heol Gwyrosydd in Penlan, returned from a local shop in his wheelchair.

“I crossed the road in Heol Gwyrosydd and started to make my way home,” he said. “Then a man drove up beside me. He wound the passenger window of his car down. He called me a cripple and a peg leg. He threatened to run over my wheelchair and then he drove on.”

Soon after two other men arrived on the scene, he said.

“The one in the front grabbed my jumper and tried to pull me out of the wheelchair,” he said. “Another man came from behind me and pulled my hoodie. He punched me in the face from behind.”

Mr Rees said the other man kicked the stump of injured leg a number of times, leaving him screaming in pain. He has since had to see a specialist at Morriston Hospital to assess any new damage to his leg.

“I don’t want to go out,” he said. “Why should it be like that? No one should suffer this. My girlfriend is 10 weeks pregnant and I want to go out with our child.”

Police said they were investigating allegations of threats made in Heol Gwyrosydd at around 9.30pm last Sunday.

“The victim and the suspect are known to each other and inquiries are ongoing to trace him,” said a spokesman.

“Officers are also investigating an assault of the man by two men in the same location which happened at around 9.45pm.”

Police described one of the two men on foot as of Asian appearance, aged mid-20s, of slim build, black hair, with short back and sides, with a pattern shaved in the sides of his hair, near his ears. He was clean shaven, and was wearing a dark blue hooded top and dark coloured Nike tracksuit bottoms. He ran down Heol Gwyrosydd in the general direction of Mynydd Newydd Road, and was with the other man.

Muslim Scroat Armed With Knife Hit Female In The Face And Robbed Her

A Muslim scroat in Luton wanted to show the world what a big time criminal he was and not one to be messed with. So he attacked 3 white roid heads with nothing but his bare hands showing them who is the daddy. Sound a bit far fetched???……. that’s because it is total fiction. Muslim bad boys don’t operate that way. Instead the cowards arm themselves with knives and hit lone females in the face before robbing them.

Muslim Savages Acid Attack On 2 British Girls In Zanzibar

Shocking reports of two British females being the victims of a cowardly Muslim acid attack in Zanzibar. The girls were there doing charity work over summer, doing something good to help others less fortunate and this is the gratitude they get from Islamist locals. There is some suggestion that the girls had recently had some kind of altercation with a local Muslim shopkeeper days before the attack. No clues as to what it was over but knowing how the twisted minds of Muslims operate and that both girls were good-looking, it could quite possibly have been an inappropriate sexual comment or unwelcome attention from the Muslim that sparked the row. One of the girls had also been viciously attacked in the street a couple of weeks ago by a female not ‘religion of peace’ follower. The reason for being attacked….singing during ramadam…these people are not right in the head honestly.

Regardless of any run ins the girls had prior, how they was dressed, their race, their religion, or anything else they may have said or done can justify them being victims in this horrific acid attack. Committed by savage Islamic cowards who get their kicks out of inflicting serious amounts of pain on female infidels.

In the UK and the west, Muslims are handled with kid gloves. People going out of their way to pander to their needs. Yet should a non-Muslim go to an Islamic country they get zero. A kafir visitor is literally running the gauntlet and probably as much chance of being the victim of violence by blood thirsty Muslims as being shown any kind of respect. The only difference between Muslims here and those over there. Is that they don’t have to pretend to like you like you or deceive to conceal their real feelings or motives like those based in the UK and Western nations. They act how they feel….with hate!

 

Zanzibar acid attack: British teenagers were ‘targeted’ and had been attacked before

Two British victims of an acid attack in Zanzibar may have been targeted following two previous run-ins with locals, it has emerged.

Two British 18-year-old women were the targets of an acid attack by men riding a motorcycle on the Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar late on Wednesday night, police said.

2:33PM BST 08 Aug 2013

Katie Gee and Kirstie Trup, both aged 18, had argued with a local shopkeeper days before two men on a moped threw acid in their faces and Katie had separately been attacked for singing during Ramadan.

One friend suggested they might have been singled out because they are Jewish, and local police said they wanted to speak a radical Islamic preacher who they believe may have inspired the attack.

The teenagers are due to fly back to the UK overnight and are expected to be taken to hospital for further treatment when they arrive home.

The teenagers from north London were teaching at the St Monica nursery school, linked to the Catholic church, whilst volunteering for a charity called Art in Tanzania after finishing their A-levels.

Two days ago Miss Gee tweeted that she had met former US president Bill Clinton, who visited Zanzibar on Sunday to pledge support for anti-malaria work through his Clinton Health Access Initiative.

Bashir Ismail, of Art in Tanzania, said they had argued with a nearby shop owner a few days ago when they went for groceries.

Mr Ismail said the two women, who were staying in Stone Town, were properly dressed when the attack happened as they were going for dinner at a beach restaurant.

“The two attackers passed by several white tourists in the area and threw acid after reaching closer to them which raises suspicion of a planned attack,” Mr Ismail said.

A friend said Katie, a former pupil at the £5,375 per term Francis Holland School in Sloane Square, Chelsea, had also been attacked two weeks ago.

Oli Cohen, 21, said: “The girls were walking through the town singing on Ramadan when a Muslim lady came up to her shouting. She lost her temper and reacted violently – and hit her in the face for singing.

“I don’t know what song it was but it wouldn’t have been anything excessively aggressive or rude – they’re so well-mannered and respectful they had gone to the town to do voluntary charity work.

“It was an isolated incident and I don’t believe it had any connection, she didn’t suffer any serious injuries – but they were both extremely shaken up by it. Not enough to come home but I know they felt uneasy being in public. Some people would stare or say things to them.

“I think white good-looking north London Jewish girls walking around in Zanzibar always make them a target as it’s a Muslim country.

“It’s a beautiful location and it was a trip that was supposed to be special for them, one to treasure forever. But it’s ended in disaster.”

The friends were in the final week of their trip on the island, a popular tourist destination famous for its white-sand beaches and spice plantations, when the attack happened in Stone Town, the island’s capital, on Wednesday evening.

Two men on a moped drove past the pair and the pillion passenger threw the liquid at them before speeding off.

Speaking for the first time since the attack, Katie’s mother Nicky Gee said: “I’ve spoken to my daughter – her whole face and body is burnt.

“It was an acid attack on two English girls. They were dressed appropriately – they just attacked two young girls.

“We can’t get them home yet. If the Royal family were there I’m sure they would get them out.”

Asked if she had any idea when her daughter would be flown home, Mrs Gee said: “Between the Foreign Office and the insurers I have no idea.”

Mrs Gee was speaking from the home of the Trup family in Hampstead, north London, a short distance from her own home in East Finchley.

A family friend said: “We want the insurance company to stop counting the beans and just get them home – that’s our main priority.

“Everyone’s priority is to get these girls back. They haven’t left the hospital yet.

“We are talking to the Foreign Office, trying to get the insurance company to move things along. We want them back so they can be treated in the UK.”

Kirstie’s father Marc Trup, a dentist and company director, said: “We’re trying to get them back as soon as possible. We’re trying to organise a medivac flight.”

The teenagers both suffered injuries to their faces, chests and hands, and were transferred to a hospital on the Tanzanian mainland.

Jakaya Kikwete, Tanzania’s president, visited them at the Aga Khan Hospital in Dar es Salaam and promised that their attackers would be found.

“It’s a shameful attack that tarnishes the image of our country, I order security agents to speed up the investigations and arrest the suspects,” he said.

Tanzanian police want to question an Islamist preacher to question him about the acid attack, a senior officer said.

Sheikh Issa Ponda Issa heads the Council of the Islamic Organisation, a radical Muslim outfit based in Dar es Salaam, and was found guilty in May of breaking and entering linked to riots that followed reports of a Christian boy desecrating a copy of the Koran. He was given a 12 month suspended sentence.

Sheikh Issa spent a week in Zanzibar at the beginning of August, preaching in mosques and advocating his supporters to demonstrate “like in Egypt” in order to secure the release of 10 imprisoned members of an Islamic separatist group.

“He has been going around telling youth that they must stage endless demonstrations and protests like in Egypt to disrupt the government and show that he has power,” an officer based in Stone Town said on the condition he was not named.

“He has not directly said the tourists should be targeted, but scaring them can be a way for his supporters to think they are achieving his aims, even more effectively than street actions, because tourist dollars are what keeps the government working.

“We want to talk to him, but his whereabouts are not known. We are looking for him. We do not think he ordered this thing, but we think he can tell us useful information.”

There had been talk in Zanzibar that a group called Uamsho, or The Awakening in Swahili, were planning public protests or some kind of action to coincide with the end of Ramadan on Thursday.

Uamsho wants Zanzibar to split from the Tanzanian mainland, which it blames for bringing alchohol and Western ways to the islands. Sheikh Pondo visited imprisoned Uamsho members in jail while he was in Zanzibar, the officer confirmed.

“There has been speculation that they would do something during Ramadan or Eid to show that they were still a force to be reckoned with,” one European hotel manager who attends regular security briefings with the island’s police said.

“To be honest, we expected maybe a street march or something. Throwing acid at two tourists seems way off from their usual methods.”

A doctor at the hospital who was part of the team that attended to the teenagers said that their injuries were “mild”.

“We suspect that whatever the liquid was, it was not true acid, it may have been diluted,” he said. “They have burns on their hands from wiping the liquid off. They have minor injuries on their chests and their necks. Considering it could have been very bad, what they have is quite mild.

“They were shocked, of course, but they are not feeling very bad.”

The teenagers were on a trip organised by Kent-based i-to-i Travel. A spokesman for the company said: “They were flown to Dar es Salaam in mainland Tanzania for medical treatment and have now been released from hospital.

“All our efforts remain focused on ensuring they are supported whilst assisting them and their relatives with the arrangements for their return home.

“i-to-i Travel is working with the authorities in their investigations and continue to liaise closely with the British consulate in Tanzania.

“The motive for the incident is as yet not known and we will await the report from the local authorities in Zanzibar before any comment can be made.

“The female clients had been volunteer teachers on Zanzibar and were in the final week of their trip.

“The safety of our customers is of paramount importance to us and our own investigation will be launched as soon as it is possible to do so and more information will be released as it becomes available.”

“Police in Zanzibar have launched a manhunt, and we ask for public assistance in identifying the attackers,” said Mkadam Khamis, the island’s deputy police commissioner.

The attack on the women came at the end of the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan, and as people began to celebrate the Eid holiday.

“The motive for the attack on the volunteers aged 18 years, has not been established. Investigations are on until we apprehend the criminals,” Mr Khamis said.

Zanzibar has long been a favoured holiday destination for foreign tourists, and there have rarely been tensions between the majority Muslim population and holidaymakers relaxing in bikinis on beaches or drinking in bars.

Recently however there have been a series of attacks targeting representatives of different religions.

These include an acid attack on a Muslim cleric in November, and the shooting dead of a Catholic priest in February. Another priest was shot and wounded in December.

The semi-autonomous Zanzibar archipelago lies 20 miles off the Tanzanian mainland.

A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: “We are aware of an incident and are providing consular assistance.”

The Foreign Office travel advice for Tanzania warns that although most visits to the country are trouble-free, “violent and armed crime is increasing”.

The advice on its website says: “Mugging, bag snatching (especially from passing cars) and robbery have increased throughout the country.”

It adds: “In Zanzibar incidents have taken place in Stone Town and on popular tourist beaches.”
