Lincolnshire police have issued an appeal for information in connection with an alleged incident of verbal abuse in Brayford North, Lincoln.
The police statement says that a man was seen pointing at a woman in a burqa outside the Sports Bar on Brayford North, Lincoln at around 10.15 am on Wednesday 17 August. He was allegedly heard making racially abusive comments which were overheard by passers-by.
The statement notes that two good Samaritans went to the assistance of the victim and that the incident was reported to the police by a third party via the True Vision website.
The statement reveals the victim herself did not report the incident to the police.
Lincolnshire police are seeking information about the man who is described as “white, of big build, fairly young and wearing a cap,” and are trying to trace the two people who came to the victim’s aid.
Inspector Suzanne Davies, of Community Policing in Lincoln, said: “Anyone with any information and in particular the two women who went to the assistance of the victim are asked to contact us on the non-emergency number 101.
“We investigate every report of hate crime and if you or someone you know has witnessed such behaviour, please report this by ringing 101.
