    Water thrown at terrified Muslim women in 'fake acid attack hate crime' outside Southampton mosque

    CCTV footage shows pair recoiling in horror as black car drives away

    Water was thrown over two women standing outside a mosque in an apparent fake acid attack police are treating as racially aggravated assault.

    Recent acid attacks have led to calls for tougher controls on corrosive substances, while Home Secretary Amber Rudd has suggested acid attack convictions could soon carry life sentences. A Home Office review will examine the law enforcement and criminal justice response, existing laws, access to harmful products and the support available for victims.

    The women, who were wearing traditional head coverings, were attacked as they waited outside the Bashir Ahmed Masjid in Southampton on Tuesday. CCTV footage shows a black car slowing down next to them before speeding away. The pair react in horror before realising they are unhurt.

    The mosque, in the southern city's Portswood district, has been forced to issue a safety warning to worshippers.

    Police described the women as "understandably shaken" while on Facebook the mosque shared their fears that a subsequent attack could involve acid. It follows a string of acid attacks, including five committed inside 90 minutes in London last week.

    A message the mosque said came from one of the women read: "Sisters just to warn you to be careful when u are out and about, you all know about the recent acid attacks in London.

    "Today my friend and I were standing outside Bashir Masjid in Portswood, waiting to be picked up when a group of men in a black car drove past us and threw water at us. We are both OK because it was only water, but if they get away with doing stuff like this then it could embolden them to next time use bleach or acid."

    Footage suggests the assault took place at about 2pm.

    A Hampshire Constabulary spokeswoman said: "We received a report yesterday regarding a racially aggravated assault in Portswood Road, Southampton.

    "A woman reported that she was stood outside a mosque in Portswood Road, with her friend, when they had water thrown over them by someone in a passing car.

    "Our investigations are continuing today and we are in contact with the victims who were understandably shaken by this incident. The vehicle is described as a black estate car."

    Anyone with information about the Southampton assault should call Hampshire Constabulary on 101, and quote reference 44170276157

    Man[Extremist Christian] jailed for punching a Muslim nurse and trying to strangle her with her hijab

    2nd August 2017

    A man[domestic terrorist] has been jailed for punching a Muslim nurse wearing the hijab after he tried to strangle her with the headscarf on her way to seeing a patient.

    The 29-year-old nurse was attacked in an alleyway near her home in Stoke-on-Trent last August.

    Jake Hammersley, 25, pleaded guilty to causing racially aggravated fear or provocation of violence, religiously aggravated common assault and assault by beating.

    The attack resulted in the nurse suffering a two-inch cut to her nose and a large bruise on her neck.

    Stoke Sentinel reported that Judge Paul Glenn said: “You took the headscarf and pulled it around her neck and when she defended herself you punched her in the face.

    ”She ran to her brother’s house – she was upset, crying, and shaken up.

    “I have also watched some footage and one wouldn’t like to be a police officer dealing with the likes of you.

    “She’s a nurse and a carer and was on her way out to care for a lady.”

    Prosecutor Caroline Harris stated that four men were involved in the attack.

    The victim told the men that she would call her son when they started verbally abusing her, but one of the perpetrators snatched her phone and put it on a car.
    Hammersley then ripped her hijab off and tied it around her neck before punching her.

    As she screamed for help, three of the men ran away.

    When her nephew came out she ran into her brother’s house.

    Hammersley’s lawyer, Robert Smith, said that his client had been leading a “chaotic lifestyle” and was “relying on the goodwill” of friends and family for money, food and accommodation.

    He said he had been living with his partner and had a full-time job since March but has 29 previous convictions.

    Hammersley was sentenced to 40 weeks in jail.
