EDL Leader Arrested For Muslim Attack
English Defence League leader Stephen Lennon has been arrested for an alleged attack on a Muslim extremist in Luton.
Earlier this year Lennon and Sayful Islam appeared on a Channel 4 documentary Proud and Prejudiced in which they had a confrontation in the Bury Park area of the town. The video of Lennon having his sunglasses knocked off by Sayful Islam has been viewed by thousands of people on You Tube.
Yesterday, a spokesman for Beds Police said a man was assaulted in New Bedford Road at about 10.15am on Saturday morning by five men who got out of a black BMW. He was punched and kicked and lost his mobile phone and keys.
His injuries are described as 'reddening of the left eye'.
Bedfordshire Police confirmed a 29-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of assault.
Lennon, who calls himself Tommy Robinson, was also arrested in east London on Saturday on suspicion of conspiring to cause a public nuisance and on suspicion of entering the US illegally in September.
