TWO BROTHERS assaulted two workers at an Indian takeaway after being refused free food.

Richard and James Dunn, 22, assaulted Abdul Mahmood, 28, and Mohammad Islam, 63, at Zayn’s Tandoori in Glasgow’s Possilpark last September.

Richard, 22, was initially refused food “on tick” before throwing blows at the two men.

He then tracked down James, 21, and both men continued to attack the men outside the shop.

The pair pleaded guilty today at Glasgow Sheriff Court to the assault.

James, a dad of one, also admitted a separate charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.

Prosecutor Aimee Doran said: “Richard Dunn attended and requested food on tick from Mr Mahmood. This was refused.

“He reached over the counter in an attempt to assault Mr Mahmood before punching Mr Islam to the right shoulder which caused him to stumble to the ground.

“Mr Mahmood saw the accused throw a plastic bottle which struck Mr Islam on the back of the head.”

The two workers managed to get Richard out the shop as he continued to throw a brick and spit at them.

Richard then called for James who punched Mr Islam to the head which made him fall to the ground.

An unknown man from the takeaway got Richard in a headlock while James and Mr Islam attempted to free him.

James shouted: “Phone the police, I will do you in.”

The workers went back into the doorway of the shop as bricks were shown in their direction.

James then attempted to play peacekeeper but lashed out for a final time at the doorway with Richard.

Richard then threatened to blow up the shop.

The pair fled the scene but were found by police officers later that night and arrested.

Sentence was deferred until next month for background reports by Sheriff Gerard Bonnar who remanded the pair in custody meantime.
