Vincent #Fuller: White #supremacist car park stabbing ‘#terrorist act’

A white supremacist who stabbed a teenager in what a judge described as a “terrorist act” has been jailed for more than 18 years. Vincent Fuller, 50, attacked Bulgarian Dimitar Mihaylov in Stanwell, Surrey, a day after a gunman attacked mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Kingston Crown Court heard Fuller, who admitted attempted murder, had set out to kill Muslims. Fuller denied a terrorist motive but Judge Peter Lodder QC rejected this. On the night of 16 March, Fuller “roamed the streets” in a violent rage “looking for a target”, the court heard. He initially armed himself with a Chelsea FC-branded baseball bat and went on the rampage. During the spree he tried to force his way into a house, swung the bat at cars and was heard shouting racist abuse. After the bat broke in half, Fuller returned home and armed himself with a knife. He then approached 19-year-old Mr Mihaylov, who was parked outside a branch of Tesco with his friend, and stabbed him through the open window.
The court heard Fuller had twice shouted “You’re going to die” and plunged a large kitchen knife towards his victim’s neck. Mr Mihaylov suffered defensive wounds to his hands, and the knife clipped his neck, the court heard. “It was only by chance he was not killed,” said Judge Lodder.
