A 25 year old man has been remanded in custody charged with attempted murder following an incident at Tesco’s store Mold on Wednesday afternoon, 14th January.

Zachary Peter Davies, from Mold, appeared before Wrexham Magistrates’ Court today Friday 16th January.

He was remanded in custody and will appear at Mold Crown Court on 23 January.

A 24 year old man was attacked at the store in what police have described as a ‘hate related, racially and religiously motivated incident’

Sarandev Brahambra, 24 is from Yorkshire, sustained serious life changing injuries in the attack on Wednesday.

Davies was arrested at the scene and taken to a local police station where he was questioned and later charged.

Senior Investigating Officer DCI Alun Oldfield said

“I would like to reassure the local community that this appears to be an isolated incident and from our enquiries 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.   In order to provide reassurance to local communities we are carrying out additional high visibility patrols, working with the Flintshire Local Authority and Neighbourhood Wardens to support officers and communities as well maintaining a presence at Tesco’s to reassure staff and shoppers.

The matter is now before the Courts and it is therefore inappropriate to add anything further.”

Anybody who witnessed the incident or events leading to the attack are asked to contact the Police with any information they may have by calling 101 or alternatively by phoning Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
