A 21-year-old man has appeared at Swansea Magistrates Court court after an incident at a mosque near Neath yesterday morning. Steven John Davies, who lives in Tonna, is charged with racially aggravated assault and damage.
South Wales Police says that a number of windows were smashed at the mosque and a woman and a man assaulted. Davies will next appear at court in ten days time.
"Such vicious and hateful attacks are entirely at odds with the views of the wider community and I would like to commend the members of the public who intervened and informed the Police" says Cllr Peter Rees, Deputy Leader of Neath Port Talbot Council
"I intend to visit the leaders of the Mosque, to offer the full support of the Council to the Imam and the community that the Mosque serves.”
