RACIST brothers who unleashed a tirade of offensive abuse on an innocent man have been jaled.

Michael Mulroy, 41, of Tynemouth Road, and younger brother Brian Mulroy, of Enfield, singled out their 39-year-old victim as he waited at Stamford Hill Railway Station on January 12.

Michael Mulroy then pulled him from the shelter threatening him to beat him up if he didn't leave while the pair hurled racial abuse at him.

While trying to escape from his attackers, the victim ran in front of a police car in Vartry Road and informed the Seven Sisters Safer Neighbourhood officers of his ordeal.

The pair were arrested and Michael Mulroy kicked the officer in an escape attempt.

They appeared at the Old Bailey on Friday, October 2, and were handed nine-month jail terms.

Michael Mulroy received an additional three-month sentence for for assaulting a police officer which will run concurrently.

Detective Constable Dan Davies, investigating officer said: "This was an unprovoked and random attack on a total stranger, who was simply standing in a train station, taking shelter from the weather.

"This custodial sentence sends out a message that all allegations of hate crime are taken seriously and we will seek to catch and bring offenders to justice."
