Men sentenced for threatening behaviour in restaurant

Two men who admitted religiously aggravated threatening behaviour in a fast-food restaurant have both been given community orders by a court.

Toni Latcal, 32, and Eugen-Aurelian Eugen-Beredei, 34, both from London, were arrested on 23 May for the incident in Newham, east London.

Labourer Latcal, who also admitted causing criminal damage, was given a 12-month community supervision order.

Plasterer Eugen-Beredei was sentenced to a six-month community order.

Latcal was also ordered to pay a £150 fine for criminal damage and told to attend a diversity course.

Both men were also ordered to pay the costs by Thames Magistrates' Court on Monday.

The incident in the Green Street restaurant took place a day after Drummer Lee Rigby was killed near his Army barracks in Woolwich, south-east London, in May.
