On a quiet Saturday night, the whole family were at home together when a brick came through into their living room, followed by the pig head. ‘
‘This was a disgusting act against an innocent family who have lived in this community for years,’ Detective Chief Inspector Chris Downey said.
‘We are treating this appalling incident as a hate crime.’
According to the Buzzfeed report, the severed head came close to hitting a boy, 14, and a girl, 6.
Ajaz Mahmood told the site he rushed home from work after his wife called him in tears.
‘She was screaming, hysterical,’ he said. ‘I only realised when I got into my front room there was a pig’s head there, wedged between the arms of the sofa, wrapped in plastic. I thought it was absolutely disgusting.
Broken glass was left in the living room
‘How do you explain that to a 6-year-old? What do you say to them? I told them they’re just mindless people that have done that.’
