Syed Ahmed had to be pulled off his ex-wife by her boyfriend David Wallwork after he had slammed her head against her car leaving a dent as he called her a ‘Bacon Basher’ a term used to describe a Muslim girl who is going out with someone white!
Syed Ahmad, 51, is alleged to have attacked his ex-wife Perveen Ahmad during an early morning argument after she emerged from her gym to find her Lexus had been vandalised. The incident took place outside the David Lloyd gym in Cheadle, Stockport. David Wallwork, pulled Syed off Parveen, then pinned him to the ground as he ‘thrashed about’ during a violent struggle.
The Ahmads, from Bramhall, had been married for 21 years and had three children.They split up in 2015 on Fathers day when Syed Ahmad had called an end to the marriage and it was on after the split that she began dating Mr Wallwork, who used to managed properties for her husband.
Police recovered mobile phone footage from the alleged assault, shot by Ahmad himself, in which his ex-wife is overheard saying: ”He is a bitter, twisted man who committed money laundering.
“He stole from people.”
He responded saying: ”She does dark magic and is never satisfied.
“She is vicious that why she has got a black face because she’s vicious – you’re evil you’re absolutely evil.”
He also accused her of engaging in witchcraft and mocked her for having a skin condition.
Mrs Ahmad a manager at the couple’s Manchester student lettings company was later treated in hospital for grazing to her arm, elbow and knees following the incident on August 13 last year.
Mrs Ahmad told Stockport Magistrates’ Court: ”It has been very acrimonious. When my ex-husband ended the marriage I felt shocked as it was father’s day. You don’t forget father’s day, I was upset for the children.
“I was in David Lloyd gym exercising as is my usual routine every morning. My friend and I had been working out for a long time I normally get there about 8.30am or 9am in the morning after the school run.
“After my work out we were walking out towards my car and I saw it was all sprayed on the passenger side all black all the way to the end.
“My car is white so it stood out and when I saw that straight away I was just really upset and it was apparent to me who had done that so I headed back to the reception to speak to somebody straight away to tell them what has happened.
”I dialed the police on my phone and said my ex husband has sprayed the car, David was at the gym and we were on the phone to the police when my ex husband walked out.
”As I was on the phone I said ‘that is him – that is my ex who has done the damage’, but he got his phone out and put it to my face and he started calling me a ‘black witch’ he is constantly mocking me for my face I have melasma on my face he put the phone to my face and he was saying all sorts of obscenities.
“As that was happening I said ‘you have sprayed my car, this is what you have done to my car’ at that time the police were still on the phone.
“He called me a ‘bacon basher’ and he has said it many times – it means that I’m going out with somebody who is white and it wasn’t the first time I have heard that.
“He walked past my car and he went to get into his car but then came towards me while I was in the middle of the car park.
“He had a phone out and videoed me and got out of the car. I just remember I had on this Louis Vuitton tote bag but he pulled my bag and he dragged me to the floor and I remember falling and rolling – banging my head.
”I tried to get up and I remember getting up but the next thing was my head was being bashed on a car and he had hold of me putting my head against a car. One of the staff came up to me and said ‘are you okay?’ and I remember David was holding him down.
“I had a grazing on my arm, my elbow, my knees were bruised and were grazed, my head my head hurt, my leg was a bit stiff.
Mr Wallwork, 54, told the hearing: ”I had started managing some properties for Mr Ahmad at the start of 2015 and my relationship with Perveen started after Mr Ahmad had left his family.
“That day I noticed Mr Ahmad was there and as I was leaving the club I got a call from Perveen saying ‘he has trashed my car.’
“I said to them I’m going to go to the Premier Inn nearby because there were two video cameras that looked down onto the area that the car was parked.
”When I came out of the Premier Inn, there was Mr Ahmad’s car and there was Perveen and a member of the David Lloyd staff stood in front of the car.
“Perveen said Mr Ahmad was videoing us with his phone and I had my hand up to stop him moving the car forward.
”I snatched the phone off him to get hold of the video but as I was walking away he opened the door and Perveen shouted ‘run, David’.
“I heard a kerfuffle behind me I turned round and Mr Ahmad was pulling her bag, it looked like he was punching her I stopped running away and turned round I saw him all over the back of her he was pulling her backwards from what I saw she was shouting help or something.
“I ran back to get him off her as I got close he left her, dropped her, and raised his fists to me the next thing we were rolling I was trying to roll him away from her.
“At this point we were in the middle of a car park at some point I ended up on the floor between two cars by luck he ended up on the floor and I got on top of him he was thrashing about with his arms, he was kicking with his legs and I got him off Perveen.
”I just got on top of him and he was shouting saying he couldn’t breath I just said calm down and relax. I didn’t get angry.”
Ahmad told the hearing: “I said that she does witchcraft and she is the queen of witchcraft it is the truth she actually does witchcraft she’s known for it and her family is known for it.
“She was following me and I kept saying ‘please don’t follow me’ when I was walking to my car.
”She kicked me and I let that go but then when she was following me she said I was bitter and twisted and that really upset me so I said ‘you perform witch craft and the marks are on your face’.
“I said ‘this is part of the problem she’s got’, because I feel like she’s not moved on.
“I was leaving the gym but she just stood in front of the car she wouldn’t move. My opinion was that Perveen had the phone and that she had it in her bag I approached her and said just give me my phone back and she said ‘no, I’m going to take the evidence off it’, even though the evidence was against them not against me.
“I went towards her and tried to grab the bag off her I pulled the bag, she resisted, I pulled harder and she fell to the floor at that time my primary concern was just to get the phone out the bag and I tried to push her away but there wasn’t a lot of space and her head hit the car.
“I protected myself I have never raised my hand to a woman.”
Defence lawyer Benjamin Kaufman told the hearing: “Every act by Mrs Ahmad on this day is done with a view of provoking Mr Ahmad – this is a woman who quite clearly was hell bent on causing as much chaos as she possibly could.”
But JPs found Ahmad guilty of assault by beating and criminal damage saying his ex-wife’s evidence was ‘credible in parts’.
He will be sentenced later.
