UK: Two Muslim-looking men threaten to behead two female cadets outside Gateshead Territorial Army Centre

The two men in a car, as captured in the CCTV video below, who threatened the teenage cadets as they left the TA Centre, appear to be Muslims with traditional Muslim beards.


Chronicle Live (h/t Martin V)  The chilling verbal attack was yesterday been described as “horrendous” by community leaders. The two girls, both aged under 18, were targeted as they left the Territorial Army centre in Gateshead. The threats are understood to have been “graphic and nasty” and included a comment about beheading.

Police believe they were threatened by two men in a car with what appeared to be Dutch number plates on Alexandra Road near the centre. Officers have released CCTV images of two men in a car who they wish to speak to in connection with the incident. The threats were said to include beheading.


It is understood the girls were not in uniform at the time but the incident has once again sparked debate about public visibility of those connected to the armed forces.

Northumberland and North East Fusilier Association chairman Major Chester Potts said: “It’s a sad state of affairs that people feel they can threaten innocent young people on the streets of Britain.”

In 2013, Fusilier Lee Rigby was attacked and killed by Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale near the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, London.
