Thirty seven year old Muslim nurse, Qaiser Hamid, was brutally and viciously beaten by a gang of teenagers yelling racist hate speech and mocking his beard at the Stockport town centre, Manchester, England.
Witnesses of the attack said a teenage girl began yelling at the victim before her male accomplices repeatedly punched Hamid in the face. Hamid required emergency medical attention for deep gashes, cuts and bruising to his face.
People working at the Stockport town centre notified police of the attack and they arrived on the scene fifteen minutes after the call.
Witnesses described the attackers as white youth between fifteen to seventeen years of age. Shop workers at Jake Shoes reported that the racist attack was completely unprovoked.
