Man jailed for hate attack on Muslim women with open packet of bacon | London

A man who launched an Islamophobic attack on two Muslim women while being filmed by his friend has been jailed.

Alex Chivers struck one of his victims with an open packet of bacon and shouted “You deserve this” during the assault on the mother and daughter in Enfield earlier this month.

Chivers from Waltham Cross was handed a six-month jail term. The incident was filmed on camera by one of Chivers’ associates, who police said remains at large.

This was a truly shocking incident. The victim was out with her mother and getting on with her day when Chivers abused her and then set upon her with something he knew would both upset and offend her.
We know other people were present during this attack, including an associate of Chivers who filmed the incident.

Inquiries are ongoing to trace these people and if you have any information that may assist in identifying them please contact the community safety unit at Enfield via 101.

– Detective Constable James Payne, Met Police

Chivers was given a 26-week jail term for the assault. He was also ordered to pay a £115 victim surcharge and will complete a 12-month supervision order when he is released from jail.
