Matthew Collins - 16 01 15

A man from North Wales has been charged with attempted murder following an alleged racially motivated attack in a Tesco supermarket.

Zack Davies,25, from Mold, North Wales was arrested by North Wales Police after the incident that saw the victim, Sarandev Brahambra left with life changing injuries on Wednesday.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Alun Oldfield said: “I would like to reassure the local community that this appears to be an isolated incident and from our inquiries to date, we believe Davies was acting alone and we are not seeking anyone else in connection with this assault.”

“Crimes of this nature are extremely rare and we are encouraged by the large number of witnesses who have so far come forward to help us build a complete picture of what took place yesterday. However if others can also assist I’d ask they contact police.”

“The 24-year-old victim remains in hospital with serious life-changing injuries. He and his family are being supported by specialist family liaison officers.”

“I am aware there is speculation on social media about the assault and I can confirm we are treating it as a hate-related, racially and religiously-motivated incident.”

Davies appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court today and was remanded in custody to reappear at Mold Crown Court on January 23rd.
