Brothers admit guilt over Tesco racist knife incident Pairsufferedviolenceathandsof adoptivemother
TWO brothers have been spared jail over an incident in which a Tesco worker was racially abused and a Stanley knife pulled on a shopper.
Maximillian Newcombe, 20, and his brother Tobias, 18, launched a racist tirade at a store worker at Hibel Road who asked them to leave, a court heard.
When customer Callum McKinstry intervened, the brothers turned on him, magistrates were told. Tobias Newcombe then left the shop and returned with a Stanley knife, threatening to stab him, the hearing was told.
Magistrates heard the brothers were subjected to a ‘reign of terror’ by their adoptive mother Dr Jill NewcombeBuley at their former home in Prestbury. Newcombe-Buley was jailed for four years in 2011 after she admitted child cruelty, the hearing was told.
