UK: Racist thugs brutally attack Turkish teen

World Bulletin / News Desk

A 17-year-old half-Turkish boy was attacked by a racist group of thugs armed with golf clubs who called the boy a "terrorist".

After the boy ran home and told his father and uncle about the incident, they went to the scene of the attack and were also subjected to racist abuse and violence by the group of thugs. 

The boy's uncle believes his brother and nephew "could have been killed".

"They knocked them down, they hit them with metal," he said. "When I drove there they smashed my car.

"One of them jumped on a bike and ran away and people came. People came because of the noise and the screaming."

Before fleeing, it is claimed the attackers shouted "next time we will kill you".

The boy's aunt, Judith, said she was "ashamed" of the attackers.

"They (father and uncle) have been here so long," she said.

"I'm British born. People are looking for an excuse to victimise somebody and they pick something like this.

"They pick a child and man who are as soft as anything. [The father] would do anything for anyone. They would never hurt anyone."

The boy's uncle, a business owner, who has lived in Britain for about 24 years, added: "[My nephew] is very young, I'm very concerned about his feelings right now.

"I hope it won't happen to other people."

A police spokeswoman said: "Officers are treating this incident seriously and will not tolerate racially or religiously aggravated assaults or violence. Enquiries are ongoing to trace those responsible."
