Ewell kebab shop damaged in race attack

Three men have damaged a kebab shop and abused a staff member there in a racially-motivated incident.

Surrey Police said the suspects targeted the Samir Kebab House in Ewell in the early hours of Saturday.

They flooded the bathroom area, racially abused a worker and threw mayonnaise around the shop, the street, and neighbouring premises.

Officers have asked customers who were there at the time to contact police.

Second incident probed

Det Con Vicki Morris said up to 10 people were in the kebab house at about 0100 BST when the three men walked in and carried out the incident.

She said the offenders walked away towards the High Street after the attack.

She added: "We know there were a number of customers inside the kebab house when the suspects walked in and we are keen to speak to these people as they may have vital information which could help our investigation.

"Any form of hate crime is a serious offence, and something we simply will not tolerate."

Detectives are investigating similarities between this incident and one which occurred last month at Sam's Kebabs in Epsom, she added.
