WITNESSES WANTED: St Albans police looking for information after racism offence

 Published on: 29th March 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Police in St Albans have put out an appeal for any witness or information concerning a racially-aggravated public order offence that took place last week.

On Friday, March 25, a 16-year-old boy was walking along Hatfield Road towards the city centre, near the double roundabout at the junction of Ashley Road.

Sometime between 5:05pm and 5:15pm, racially offensive language was shouted towards him by a passing vehicle travelling in the opposite direction.

Though the victim of the abuse was unable to get a registration number or exact model for the offending vehicle, it has been described as being red and potentially a Nissan or a Volvo.

Investigating PC Charlie Marshall said: “This kind of behaviour is extremely upsetting and is absolutely unacceptable. Our enquiries are continuing at this time and, as part of this, we are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident to please come forward.

“We’d be particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have been driving in the area at the time and captured the incident or the vehicle involved on a dash cam. If you can help, please get in contact.”

There are multiple ways to report information. You can email, visit the Herts Police website, speak to an operator via their web chat, or by calling the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference number 41/24014/22.

Information can also be reported anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers, who can be contacted their number 0800 555 111 or by visiting their website.
