Three Wembley men have been charged in connection with a ‘hate attack’ outside a Cricklewood mosque.

Police were called to the Al-Majlis Al-Hussaini mosque in Oxgate Lane just after midnight on September 19 to reports of a car hitting pedestrians and driving off.

Three people were injured, none of whom remains in hospital, police said.

On Tuesday three men and a woman were arrested in connection with the incident.

Martin Stokes, 24, Thomas McDonagh, 20, and Michael O’Donnell, 20, were all charged yesterday.

A 17-year-old woman has not been charged but has been bailed to return to a police station next month.

Stokes is appearing at Willesden Magistrates’ Court today charged with Section 18 GBH, aggravated taking a vehicle without consent, causing injury by dangerous driving, driving without a licence or insurance, and racially aggravated harassment with intention to cause alarm or distress.

McDonagh and O’Donnell are charged with aggravated vehicle taking, vehicle and property damage.

O’Donnell is also charged with tampering with a number plate.

Both have been bailed to appear at a magistrates’ court on a date to be confirmed.

Brent CID continues to investigate.
