Muslim 'bully choked schoolboy until he passed out because he was hugging a girl in the street'

A Muslim "bully" attacked a schoolboy by choking him and making him pass out because he saw him hugging a girl in the street, a court was told.

Michael Coe, 35, was driving through east London when he spotted the two 16-year-olds cuddling on the pavement.

Southwark Crown Court heard he allegedly confronted the pair, demanding to know if they were Muslims, before calling the girl a "whore".

Coe was said to have grabbed the boy by the throat, causing him to black out, before he woke up bleeding on the floor.

When passing schoolteacher Boutho Siwela tried to come to the couple's aid, Coe then allegedly attacked him.

Coe is on trial accused of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and battery. [Daily Mirror] Read more
