Man punched in racist assault
A MAN was punched in the face and subjected to abuse in a racially motivated assault outside a takeaway.
The incident, which police believe was racially aggravated, took place on Sunday 24th June 2012 at 10.40pm outside Tennessee Chicken on Victoria Road.
The victim was walking up to the premises when he noticed a group of between 8 to 12 males, who had gathered outside.
As he walked through the group one man started making racist remarks before hitting the victim in the side of the head.
The victim managed to get into the premises before calling police, prompting the suspect to run away.
As a result of the assault, the victim sustained a chipped tooth which required treatment and a swollen face.
The man police would like to speak to in connection with this incident is described as a white male, in his late 20’s, about 6ft tall and of stocky build.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Thomas Fenwick at Gablecross Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
