  6. A thug who launched a campaign of abuse at Asian women in Birmingham has been jailed for three religiously aggravated assaults. 34-year-old Davion Kelly punched, shouted, spat on and threw liquid at Asian women in separate incidents that took place in Lozells, Birmingham. The court heard how Kelly attacked his first victim as she was sat in her car with her two young children and was waiting for traffic lights to change. He threw liquid at the victim and when challenged the defendant punched and shouted abuse towards her. A couple of days later he approached two more Asian women in their cars and spat at them through the window before shouting abuse, including calling them ‘terrorists’. Kelly was arrested for the attacks and pleaded guilty to three counts of religiously aggravated assault by beating at Birmingham Magistrates Court. He was jailed for 12 months, which was increased from six months to reflect the religiously aggravated element of his crimes. Birmingham Mail reported, Meloney Hughes, Senior Crown Prosecutor with West Midlands Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), said: “Over a three day period, Davion Kelly targeted his victims purely due to their ethnicity. “He threw items at them, spat and shouted abuse at them. The abuse contained references to being a Muslim and a terrorist.” He added: “People from all communities have a right to be protected from the prejudice at the root of religious hate crime, and the Crown Prosecution Service is determined to play its part in this. “It is vital that people recognise what this crime is in the first place. Often victims are not aware that what they are experiencing is a crime. “The CPS is working with our partner agencies to robustly prosecute those individuals who commit any form of hate crime as such offences will not be tolerated.”

Police have today named a woman who died in a hit-and-run on Soho Road, Handsworth as Surinder Kaur. The 61-year-old local woman was crossing the Soho Road outside the Guru Nanak temple at around 5.30pm on Friday 4 December when she was struck by the car which was travelling in the direction of Birmingham. The driver of the vehicle did initially stop at the scene but then drove away. Sergeant Paul Hughes from West Midlands Polices Collision Investigation Unit, said The vehicle involved is believed to be a Vauxhall Astra VXR Artic Edition, which is a limited edition model. It has a very distinctive black roof and wing mirrors and I have chosen to release photographs of the model and the actual vehicle in a hope that these will prompt someones memory. The vehicle involved will have damage to the front nearside bumper I would appeal to anyone who saw the vehicle on that day or has seen one since that day with similar damage to contact either myself or my team In addition I would appeal direct to the driver of that vehicle to come forward. I know you stopped outside the temple and I know you got out of the vehicle and walked back towards the scene before driving away. Please do the right thing and get in touch with either myself or my team. Anyone with information should contact the Collision Investigation Unit on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Our condolences to the family and friends of aunty ji. Let's hope the culprit is found quickly. Waheguru https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=437600183117416&id=160796724131098
