Witness appeal

We are appealing for information after an 18-year-old woman was racially abused and spat at on Holbrook Road, Portsmouth.

The incident happened at around 3pm on Saturday 25 March as the woman, who is of Bangladeshi origin, was waiting at a pedestrian crossing. 

We are looking for a passenger in a small white/silver hatchback in connection with this incident. 

He is described as white and in his early 30s. 

We believe this was an isolated incident and we are keen to identify this man. 

It was a sunny day with lots of people and traffic in the area, so we are hoping somebody witnessed the incident.

If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 quoting reference '44170111996', or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
