We’re appealing for witnesses following a racially aggravated assault in Southampton.
Sometime between 8.22pm and 9pm on Friday, 9 July, a man in his 20’s was walking down The Avenue, towards the city centre, when two men walked past him and racially abused him.
One of the men then punched the victim on his ear, causing it to bleed slightly before walking off.
The incident happened near to the junction of Northlands Road.
The first man is described as white, aged between 20-30 years old, around 5ft 10 inches tall and of medium/muscular build. He had short dark hair and a short beard and moustache.
The second male is described as white, aged between 20-30 years old, around 6ft tall and of medium/muscular build. He also had short dark hair.
Officers are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information that may help us identify the two men involved.
Were you in the area at the time? Did you witness anything? Have you heard anyone talking about being involved in the incident?
Anyone with any information should call us on 101 quoting 44210276213.
Alternatively people can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at https://crimestoppers-uk.org/
Any crime perpetuated through ignorance, prejudice or hate is unacceptable and we will not tolerate it in Southampton.
We are working with our partners and local communities and we would encourage everyone to report incidents of hate crime to us either by calling 101, or 999 in an emergency.
Reports can also be made online on the Hampshire Constabulary website at https://www.hampshire.police.uk/, through True Vision website at www.report-it.org.uk, or using the growing network of Third Party Reporting Centres for hate crime.
