London: Twenty-four-year old Mickey Sage, who hunted for Muslims with a 10-inch knife, and claimed to become “a martyr for England”, has been imprisoned.

According to the police, Sage “pulled a knife on people asking them if they were Muslim” in Camberwell Green on June, 7. While taken by the officers, he revealed his plan and made Islamophobic remarks, reported the Independent.

Sage stated, he would be a martyr for England and stab an imam in the neck, police said. With his bare threats, a judge at Inner London Crown Court sentenced him two years and three months in prison.

On hearing reports that a man was threatening people between Camberwell Green and Camberwell Church Street with a knife, police arrested Sage with a weapon in his possession. As he was being arrested by an officer, he told the officer “it was my knife and I was out to kill a Muslim.”
