UK man accused Muslim man of ‘planning bombs’

30 January 2012 General 24 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

By Steph Johnson

A Penrith man who accused a Muslim of “planning bombs” has been given a conditional discharge because of his mental health problems.

Mitchell Tutty, 44, appeared before Carlisle Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

He had already admitted racially aggravated harassment and using threatening behaviour.

The court heard that Tutty, of no fixed abode, approached Kahel Miah as he walked towards St Michael’s Church in Penrith.

Tutty tried to take his mobile phone off him, claiming to be a policeman.

Then he said: “You’re planning something, you’re planning bombs.’

Another man saw the altercation and went to try to help Mr Miah.

The witness told police that Tutty was swearing at Mr Miah and being racially abusive.

One of the threats he heard was: “I don’t know why you’re over here. I’ll take a photo of you, I’m watching you.”

Two days after the incident, which took place on October 25, Tutty was bothering another resident.

Prosecutor Diane Jackson said he trailed Harold Harrison as he walked from Strickland Gate to the Shell garage.

Mr Harrison did not know Tutty and said he was concerned by his aggressive behaviour and attempts to strike up conversations.

Defence solicitor Geyve Walker told the court that his client was currently being treated at a psychiatric hospital, where he was making good progress.

Mr Walker asked the magistrates to give Tutty a conditional discharge so he could concentrate on rehabilitation when he was released. The bench agreed and told Tutty that as long as he did not get into trouble for the next 12 months no further action would be taken.


  1. And where’s the justice for the man who was harrassed and threatened?

  2. Ugh. This man is desperately ill and will harm someone if he’s not kept medicated and under close watch.

  3. @_@

  4. If the victim was jewish ‘stead of muslim.. yeah you already know it would have different judicial outcomes

  5. why do so many idiot think that just becuase your muslim that you are a terrorist. that is horrible. people that steriotype are horrible.

  6. schizophrenia and fox news do not mix well

  7. Actually Malik I think that comment is rather xenophobic in itself and just as unhelpful t’ the cause y’ profess. If I am wrong I would like t’ see your evidence.

  8. wait.. i thought “schizophrenia” and “fox news” were interchangable concepts. =-/

  9. He does seem mentaly unstable to me, poor guy. Allah yishafi.

  10. A crazy guy swearing at people? I see that happen every Friday night!

  11. He is mentally ill. He didn’t assault anyone. We must help the sick, and not condemn them. I am glad he is making progress.

  12. The man is sick and is a xenophobe! If you took away his sickness he would still be prejudiced.

  13. I blame the media for making society that was already sick even sickor with nonsense Propaganda against 1.5 billion people. Muslims around the globe have become generalized by western owned media, what is even sadder is society who could not think for itself now has jumped on the wagon. I hope these morons can do us all a favour and kill themselves lmao

  14. Islamophobia is a disease hopefully all who are infected will get well soon .

  15. Katherine, would that it were that simple. Aspects of the problem can be witnessed with such as the rarer symptoms of Tourette’s syndrome where curse words are used inappropriately and involuntarily. Bit of a clumsy way of trying t’ explain the inability of the sufferer t’ control aspects of their behaviour that may be completely at odds with their own actual beliefs but the very fact that they are aware of the situation may be creating the response. It is also quite possible he is a xenophobe who just happens t’ have mental health issues but it should not be assumed t’ be a fact or a symptom without research into the individual case. I just feel we should use the belief that people are intrinsicely beautiful as a default. May be a bit impractical but I think I’ve had more refreshing, suprising experiences than I’ve been f**ked over.

  16. This ‘tutty’ needs to lay off the drugs…

    DIE TONIGHT AT 10:35
    … … … P.M .9 years ago

    They had
    to go inside and search for
    him. They
    went through every room
    exept the
    attic.He wasn’t supposed to

    sleep in the
    living room they went into
    the attic.
    They saw Jerry’s corpse and
