Appeal following racially aggravated assault in Nuneaton

Officers in Nuneaton are appealing for information after a man was the victim of a racially aggravated assault in the town last month.

The incident happened at between 12.30am and 1.30am on Sunday 16 July outside McDonalds on Queens Road, Nuneaton.

The victim, a man in his 20s from Nuneaton, was walking on the road with friends when they approached by a group of around 10 men who racially abused them.

Following an altercation, the victim was punched in the face by one of the men and knocked unconscious. He was taken to hospital with facial injuries and is now making a recovery.

PC Nicola Sanders said: "This was a shocking attack that has left a young man with nasty facial injuries. We're particularly concerned that the motivation for this was racial and we're keen to identify those responsible in case they do this to someone else.

"We believe there were other people in the area at the time and we're keen to speak to these people."

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information that could help officers with their enquiries is urged to call 101 and quote incident 496 of 17 July 2017. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org
