Amin attacked a woman who was pushing a pram
Thug Suleman Amin, aged 20, went on a spree of violent attacks of a period of six weeks. Where he fractured a victim’s skull, smashed a mother’s head against a wall and attacked a father holding a baby.
Amin has been jailed for six years for his attacks on a number of people because he had some kind of resentment towards them.
His hearing at Bradford Crown Court was told a 17-year-old boy was one of his victims. He attacked him viciously in a McDonald’s in Halifax, shocking staff and customers.
The incident was fully captured caught on CCTV in April 2018.
The footage showed in court sees Amin knocking out his victim with a single punch. Then, as he lay unconscious and slumped over a table, he hit him again in the horrific attack.
Also, Amin punched another man who tried to help the victim and gave him a black eye as a result. He struggled with a woman as well who tried to intervene.
The teenage victim sustained major injuries, including a fractured skull and on his way to hospital suffered bleeding on the brain and two seizures. He had to stay in the hospital for eight weeks after the assault.
The attack has possibly quashed the injured teen’s chances of joining the armed forces.
The other violent attacks committed by Amin were no less shocking or deplorable over the six-week spree.
Amin was caught on CCTV once again about a couple of weeks prior to the McDonald’s attack. He violently punched and stamped on another young victim five times inside a Boots pharmacy located on Keighley Road in Halifax.
Prosecuting, Eddison Flint told the court that even after being interviews by police over the two attack, in a Halifax street, Amin attacked a woman who was pushing a pram with her child inside it.
Witnesses saw Amin banging the mother’s head against a wall and as she fell to the ground he was seen kicking her.
Then on the same day, Amin went to the woman’s house and attacked her partner. He used a club weapon on him despite that the man was holding his baby daughter.
After the vile attack on the father sustained injuries to his head, shoulders and back, and the baby suffered a bruising on her forehead.
Defending Amin, his barrister Ken Green said that Amin who was 19 at the time was in a fragile state of mental health.
Green said Amin had feelings of grievance towards each of the victims, justified or not, reported the Examiner Live.
Amin pleaded guilty to the offences committed by him. These included inflicting grievous bodily harm, attempting to inflict grievous bodily harm with intent, assault and common assault.
Judge Colin Burn who had watched CCTV footage of the McDonald’s attack said that while Amin was emotionally vulnerable at the time, he was not willing or capable of controlling his irrational anger.
Judge Burn said:
“At the time you committed these offences you were a very violent young man.”
The judge told the court that Amin’s crimes showed that he was “out of control” at the time of the attacks during that period.
Amin has been sent to prison at young offenders institution for his offences.
