Three men who “patrolled” the streets of east London threatening members of the public for their “un-Islamic” behaviour were jailed today.
Jordan Horner was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 12 months’ imprisonment after he pleaded guilty to two counts of actual bodily harm and two counts of threatening behaviour in October.
He and a second man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also pleaded guilty to two offences under Section 4 of the Public Order Act.
A third man, Ricardo Macfarlane, pleaded guilty to one count of affray at a hearing on 21 November.
The charges related to incidents in east London during December 2012 and January 2013, some of which were recorded on YouTube by passers by, in which the defendants threatened members of the public for their “un-Islamic” behaviour.
The group referred to themselves as “The Muslim Patrol”.
Baljit Ubhey, chief crown prosecutor for London, said: “They would roam the streets, seeking out victims whom they could target, and chanting threats to ‘kill the non-believers’.
“On the nights in question they confronted and aggressively intimidated a couple who were holding hands in the street, a group of friends who were drinking alcohol, and a girl whom they deemed to be dressed provocatively.”
He added: “The bullying behaviour of this group will not be tolerated in our city.”
