ENGLAND – Daniel Way 37, was found guilty of racially aggravated assault after he attacked Tomas Gil in Bournemouth, England.
CCTV footage shows the 37-year-old wrenching a plank from a building before getting up and charging towards Mr Gil. He then hits him in the face with it, causing Mr Gil to fall to the ground.
Simon Jones prosecuting told the court that the defendant screamed at the victim ‘*** Spanish speak in English’.
He said: ‘Mr Gil sustained cuts and bruises to the mouth. He falls straight on the floor and seems knocked back for a moment. He described a feeling of losing consciousness.’
The court heard that Way was then restrained by members of the public until police arrived. Guy Draper, defending, said Way was ‘genuinely remorseful’ and was ‘driven to tears when he watched the CCTV footage’. Mr Draper said: ‘This is disgraceful behavior. There was a very recent break-up with a girlfriend.
