Amine Husseine, from Somalia, attempted the abduction of the terrified girl
A failed asylum seeker and convicted sex offender tried to kidnap a 10-year-old girl from a Tesco store and threatened to 'kill every British person he saw'.
Amine Husseine, from Somalia, attempted the abduction of the terrified girl as she looked at shoes in the supermarket in Eastgate, Bristol.
He told her to put the shoes back and go with him and when she told him she was not allowed to go with strangers he snarled 'just come' and the girl screamed.
The 35-year-old tried to grab her but she was rescued by her mother and sister and he fled.
While he left the premises, he told security staff: 'When I get back to Somalia I will kill every British person I see and come back and abduct another child.'
Bristol Crown Court heard that Husseine arrived in the UK in 2009 and has committed 20 offences since then, including three other sexual assaults.
Two involved attacks on people in a hospital and bowling alley and the third was on a child under 13, for which he was jailed for 10 months.
But although his application for asylum has been refused all attempts to deport him have failed as Somalia does not accept forcibly deported people.
A moratorium, on the deportation of foreign criminals to Somalia, that was in place at the time of Huesseine's crimes, has now been lifted. But the country is running a case-by-case system on accepting them.
Husseine, of Eastville, Bristol, admitted attempted child abduction and theft of alcohol from the Tesco and was jailed for two-and-a-half-years.
Judge Euan Ambrose told him: 'The obvious inference to be drawn from what you said at the time is that your motive was either sexual or violent.
'It matters not from a sentencing point of view. Each is deeply abhorrent. No other motive has been put forward.'
Husseine was also given an indefinite restraining order banning him from all contact with the victim, her mum and sister or youngsters aged under 16
After the case the child's mum said she and her family were moving to another part of Bristol.
She said: 'It was terrifying, I wish the sentence was more. She doesn't want to be around there no more.
'We have always told her about not going off with strangers. She is a star.'
Lee Mott, defending, said alcohol played a part in his client's offending and he accepted it had been his fault.
Husseine maintained his motive for trying to take the girl was not sexual and he would not harm a child.
Mr Mott said Husseine had worked to address alcohol issues in custody and wanted to make something of his life.
A Home Office spokeswoman told MailOnline: 'This Government puts the rights of the British public before those of criminals, and foreign nationals who abuse our hospitality by committing crimes in the UK should be in no doubt of our determination to deport them.'
