Herald Scotland reports on a police appeal to find a man who racially abused staff at an Indian takeaway in Stirling last week.

A man went in to the Taste Budz restaurant in Maxwell Place at around 10pm on Wednesday 31 May and allegedly shouted racially offensive comments at staff.

Police described the suspect as white, in his mid-twenties and slim. He was wearing a blue cap, blue hooded top and blue tracksuit bottoms. The man was also carrying a bag.

The suspect was seen with a shopping trolley on Murray Place, where he spoke to a woman at a taxi rank, before walking off in the direction of Port Street.

Constable Ian Marshall from Police Scotland described the abuse as “completely unacceptable”. Constable Marshall said, “The comments made to the staff at this premises were completely unacceptable and we are pursuing various lines of local inquiries to trace the male responsible.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101. Alternatively, members of the public can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
