The victim, who is from Aldershot, had taken his son out to let him ride his electric car on the pavement.
They were both stood by the information building at Aldershot Bus Station when they were approached by a white male.
They decided to head home and were followed by the male. As they turned left from Station Road onto The Grove, the man stood in front of the child’s car.
The suspect then asked the victim where he was from. When he was told he was from Poland, he was racially abusive and continued to follow them.

He left but damage was also caused to the communal door, causing the glass to smash.
