An obviously mentally deranged man armed with a hammer and a machete has tried to carry out a Moslem-style attack on a Sikh while shouting ‘White Power’ in a supermarket.
The report does not say what ethnicity the man is and he could conceivably be non-White, which is what you would instantly think when hearing of the weapons he used.
As usual there have been references to the ‘Far Right,’ although there has been nothing offered to actually link the offender with any Far Right groups apart from the slogan he shouted.
It does all sound very suspicious, as the less aware nationalists in Britain tend to think very highly of the Sikhs and the more aware would not be doing something so stupid as attacking anyone while shouting ‘White Power.’
A man armed with a machete and a hammer shouted “white power” as he launched a savage attack on an Asian shopper who was buying his lunch in a supermarket in North Wales, according to witnesses.
A 25-year-old man was held on suspicion of attempted murder, following what is believed to have been a racially motivated assault in Tesco in Mold on Wednesday.
The victim, a 24-year-old Sikh man, suffered what police described as “life-changing injuries”, but was saved from being more seriously hurt when other people in the store overpowered the attacker.
Police believe the suspect was operating on his own, but are looking into whether he was part of a wider group. They were given extra time to question the man today.
The horrifying scenes came amid heightened tension following the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris, but it is understood that there is not thought to be any significant link to events in France.
Eyewitnesses said the “huge knife” used by the attacker looked like “something out of [the film] Crocodile Dundee”. Colin Cooper, of Leeswood, near Mold, told The Daily Post newspaper: “I heard a lot of shouting to start with. They called for security over the loudspeaker. Then 30 seconds or a minute later this lad was being helped by a couple of staff saying, ‘Get me an ambulance.’ The lad attacked was Asian. He had his hands in front of his stomach. I couldn’t tell whether his hands were cut from protecting himself or if he’d been stabbed.”
Rich Fay, a 20-year-old student, said he heard screams coming from an aisle in the supermarket. “In one arm the man had a knife and in the other I believe it was a hammer,” he said.
It is understood the suspect was known to the police, but it is not thought he had a record for violent assaults. There were unconfirmed reports that he had been in the Army.
The police are saying it was not religiously motivated, but they do think it was racially motivated.
Whatever it was, it was not helpful to our cause and surely closer to the behavior of the Negro than that of the civilized man.
