Surrey man racially attacked by group of youths

A man was racially abused, punched and pushed to the ground in Frimley by group of 10 to 12 youths who then repeatedly kicked him in the face.

The 39-year-old man was walking along Sandringham Way with his wife and daughter at about 0030 BST on Saturday when he was attacked.

The victim was treated at Frimley Park Hospital for facial injures.

Surrey Police have issued descriptions of two of the boys they suspect were involved in the attack.

One is described as white, between 15 and 16 years old, around 6ft (1.8m) and slim. He had short, spiky ginger hair, and was clean shaven and was wearing a red or maroon cardigan.

Another is described as a white, also about 15 or 16, at least 5ft 6in (1.67m) and slim. He had light brown curly hair and was wearing a black jacket.

Sgt Jon Castell said: "Although we have only issued descriptions for two of the offenders, we are seeking to identify a larger number of individuals who were also involved.

"Any form of hate crime will simply not be tolerated and we are keen to identify and trace this group and bring the offenders to justice."

A 16-year-old boy from Deepcut has been arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated assault.
