Mizzy Tiktoker: Prankster previously arrested for assaulting orthodox Jews fined for entering home

Bacari O'Garro, 18, has posted a series of videos that appear to show him harassing Jews


A teenager has been issued with a criminal behaviour order and fined hundreds of pounds after entering a home as part of a TikTok "prank" video. 

Bacari-Bronze O'Garro, 18, known online as “Mizzy" described his actions as "having fun” but admitted to one count of failing to comply with a community protection notice at Thames Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, May 24.

Speaking in court, Varinder Hayre, prosecuting, said that he then breached that notice by entering a home on May 15 this year.

She said: "He went to the home address of the victim. The door of the property was open. Mr O'Garro walked into the property and immediately walked down the stairs.

"He was stopped by the homeowner. He went into the living room. He sat down on the sofa and said, 'Is this where the study group is?’

“He was asked to leave multiple times by both the victim and the husband."

She added: "It was discovered that he had filmed the entire incident for a TikTok trend about walking into random houses.

"He has caused the family a lot of distress. The faces of the couple and their two young children can be seen."

Lee Sergent, the lawyer for O’Garro, said the 18-year-old had apologised to the family and that he was raised by a single parent and had a difficult upbringing, adding: “He is an intelligent young man and a young man with some potential."

Judge Charlotte Crangle issued O'Garro with a two-year criminal behaviour order.

The order included that O'Garro must not directly or indirectly post videos on to social media without the documented consent of the people featured in the content, that he must not trespass into private property, and that he must not visit Westfield Stratford. 

She also ordered O'Garro to pay a fine of £200, as well as a victim surcharge of £80 and costs of £85 - totalling £365.

It comes after O’Garro was arrested for assault after he posted a series of videos that appear to show him harassing Jews in February. He has not been charged by the Met Police in relation to this incident.

In one video he can be seen sneaking up behind a young Charedi man as he waits at a bus stop. He then jumps into the air, places his hands on his victim’s shoulders and then attempts to leapfrog over him.

In another video, he can be seen cycling while wearing a hoiche hat and saying: “Guys I’m a f**king Jew.” In another clip titled “Who leaves their door open like that”, O'Garro also enters the home of a Jewish family.

A man wearing a prayer shawl and two children can be seen as he wanders down a hallway and glances into the kitchen, before running out.

In a later video posted to YouTube, O'Garro claims he was held by police for 36 hours “for a TikTok”. During the clip, the teen walks around Stamford Hill, initiates conversations with strangers and repeatedly insists he is not an antisemite.

The Met Police said he was arrested for assaulting a member of the Jewish community with a spokesman adding: “The man has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.”

Last night, the 18-year-old appeared on Talk TV with Piers Morgan where he was grilled about the pranks and videos. 

During the interview, Morgan listed the numerous extreme pranks O'Garro has carried out. He said: “You go up and take a dog from an elderly woman, you leapfrog over the top of an orthodox Jewish man standing at the side of the road minding his business. You go up to women in the street and say, 'do you want to die?''

At one point the Talk TV presenter then asked: “A lot of the stuff that you do could have consequences far more serious but you don't care do you, as long as you get a laugh?”

O'Garro replied: “Of course I care… I have remorse.' He went on to say he is his 'own person' and 'I am legally an adult now so I can do what I want'.”

The teenager added: "I wouldn't call it terrorising, I would more call it having fun.

"But let me get this out of the way first, I apologise. You see this situation that blew up on the internet, like walking into random houses, the next day I apologised because I felt bad."
