Three teenage thugs face jail for launching two sickening racist attacks on Asian shopkeepers in the space of just one hour.
Twins Justin and Luke Lovedale, 17, and Nicholas Gardener, 17, screamed racist abuse as they punched and kicked their terrified victims, a court heard.
The sickening attacks were caught on CCTV inside the two stores during their night of violence in Bristol. The footage was shown to Bristol magistrates’ court and all three were found guilty of racially aggravated assault in both shops. In the first attack, the two twins – who were 16 at the time – punched and kicked a member of staff in Bargain Booze after they were refused vodka and cigarettes. They pulled shopkeeper Ashok Selvam’s T-shirt over his head and then rained blows down on him, District Judge David Parsons heard.
