Norwich: Woman Sentenced After Racist Assault
A 33-year-old woman has been sentenced after a racist attack on a bus in Norwich.
Sarah Lowery, of Lushington Close, Norwich, appeared at the city's crown court today (19 April) after pleading guilty to three counts of racially aggravated assault.
The charges related to an incident which happened on Thursday 20 September shortly after 6pm as the victims, four women and a toddler, were travelling on a bus in Bowthorpe.
When the bus reached Humbleyard, Lowery verbally abused the group before assaulting the women.
Lowery was sentenced to four months imprisonment, suspended for two years.
Investigating officer PC Andy Tomlinson, from Earlham Police Station, praised the support of members of the public who assisted during the enquiry. He said: "This was a nasty incident and very unpleasant for the victims involved. Several passengers provided information which assisted the enquiry and ultimately led to Lowery being arrested and later charged.
"This type of behaviour is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated in the Norwich community."
