An attacker spat into a nine-month-old baby’s face and shouted ‘white people shouldn’t breed’ in a sickening race-hate assault.
Rezzas Abdulla left little Layla-Jean, who was just nine months old and in her pushchair, covered in saliva after the shocking street attack in South Shields last January.
Newcastle Crown Court heard the baby’s mother, hairdresser Rebecca Telford, 25, was out walking with the baby when the 33-year-old attacker approached without warning.
Prosecutor Emma Dowling told the court: ‘He lent into the pushchair and spat into the face of her daughter.
‘As he did so, he shouted or said “white people shouldn’t breed”.’
