An Abbots Langley man was attacked with an unknown substance in his own home by three men last weekend (Sunday, October 27).

Police were called on the morning of Monday, October 28 to report an assault which had taken place  at approximately 7pm the previous day. 

It was reported that three men had entered the victim’s home address and were verbally abusive.

The victim was then punched in the face before one of the suspects threw an unknown liquid at him, causing slight injuries to his stomach.

The suspects are all described as being aged in their early 30s, with short dark hair.

One was wearing a black t-shirt which featured a white ‘W’ logo, one was wearing a chequered shirt and a long black anorak, and one was wearing a camouflage print top. 

Detective sergeant Steven Boddy, of the Three Rivers Local Crime Unit, said: “Due to the nature of the comments made during the incident, this is being treated as a racially aggravated assault. We are currently following multiple lines of enquiries in order to identify the suspects, which includes house to house enquiries, and identifying all CCTV opportunities.

“If you were in the area at the time and believe that you may have witnessed the incident, or may have information which could help us to identify those involved, please get in contact with us. 

“I fully appreciate incidents of this nature are likely to cause concern in the local community, but we are currently treating this as isolated.”
