‘Extremely violent’ Muslim brothers brutally attack man with an axe and a meat cleaver.

‘Extremely violent’ Mahmood brothers.

The Muslim brothers brutally attacked a man with an axe and meat cleavers while he waited to be picked up.

Romaan Mahmood, 19, and Zidane Mahmood, 21, targeted the victim on September 3 last year while he stood outside his home in Oldham.

Just as the man was getting in his car a Nissan Micra approached containing the ‘violent’ Mahmood brothers and two other men, Jamal Saleem, 20, and Husnain Abid, 26.

The group started shouting and screaming at the man, before one of them snatched the car’s keys. Romaan Mahmood tried to open the rear passenger door, as the victim attempted to hold it shut.

Wielding an axe and screaming with rage, he smashed the window of the car. Abid and Saleem helped Romaan Mahmood open the car door. Romaan Mahmood then swung the axe at the victim, but missed.

Zidane Mahmood then came round to the passenger side and attacked the victim with a meat cleaver. He was hit a number of times with the axe by Romaan Mahmood, who also spat at him.

The brothers threatened the man again before getting in the Micra, taking the car keys of the victim with them. The man asked for his keys back while covered in blood, and he was told if he ‘snitched’ they would petrol bomb his house.

Weeks earlier Romaan Mahmood and some other men had gone to the victim’s house and made threats to petrol bomb the property.

The victim suffered serious injuries to his hands and arms and was hospitalised. The Mahmood brothers, both of Chapel Road, Oldham, each admitted section 18 assault.

Romaan Mahmood was jailed for only eight-and-a-half years, and Zidane Mahmood received a sentence of seven years and eight months.

Abid, also of Chapel Road, and Saleem, of Napier Street East, Oldham, both received 18 month community orders after admitting affray.

After the hearing at Minshull Street Crown Court, Detective Constable Tom Sutcliffe said: “This was a terrifying attack where not only was a man viciously assaulted, but serious threats were made to his family as well, leaving them fearing for their safety.
