Police search for man charged with attacking pregnant Muslim who lost her unborn twins

Co-op in Bletchley where the assault took place

Police have launched a search for a man who attacked a pregnant Muslim woman which resulted in the mother losing her unborn twins.

David Gallacher was due to appear before Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court yesterday morning charged with racially aggravated assault.

But police have issued an arrest warrant after the 37-year-old failed to turn up in court.

Gallacher was charged after he repeatedly kicked mother-to-be Samsam Haji-Ali, 34, in the stomach near a Co-op store in Bletchley, Milton Keynes on Sunday 6 November 2016.

He is also accused of attacking her husband Abdullah Sulaiman, 40, and three police officers during his arrest.
