AN ABUSIVE yob went into a kebab shop and slapped a worker inside.

Jason Malik went to the Nayeb kebab house in Church Road, Hove and launched a drunken tirade.

He attacked Eskandar Hajezadah inside the takeaway.

At Lewes Crown Court it was also revealed that the offence put him in breach of a suspended sentence for affray where he committed a similar offence inside Domino’s Pizza in London Road, Brighton and then inside The World’s End pub nearby.

The 22-year-old Deliveroo rider had used racist abuse towards black and white people and was seen throwing chairs during the violence.

He shouted: “I’m going to f****** kill you, do you f****** want some?”

Her Honour Judge Anne Arnold did not send Malik to prison for breaching the suspended sentence.

Instead she ordered him to clean up his act and complete alcohol dependency treatment for four months.

Kyle Fournillier, prosecuting, said the incident unfolded at Nayeb on February 4 this year.

Malik had threatened to use a weapon to stab the victim, it was revealed.

His previous convictions include racist harassment likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress in 2017.

Then in February last year, a suspended sentence was imposed over the incident at Domino’s in October 2019.

Jonathan Atkinson, defending, said Malik was “mortified” to be shown CCTV footage of his drunken behaviour.

He said his client accepted he had behaved “appallingly” but said Malik was making good progress with the probation service as part of his current suspended sentence.

Mr Atkinson said that Malik previously did not believe he had a problem with his alcohol issues.

Judge Arnold said Malik, of New England Street, Brighton, risks going to prison if he were to commit any further crimes.

“You have come within a hair’s breadth away from going to prison straight away,” she told him.

She said the new offence was a minor one and would not have merited a jail term by itself.

Malik must instead complete the alcohol treatment and pay £500 compensation to Mr Hajezadah. He must also pay a £100 surcharge and £420 costs.
