Racist Assault In Northampton
Officers in Northampton are appealing for witnesses to a racist assault which took place in St Michael's Road, Northampton, on Saturday 20 April.
The incident took place sometime between 7.10pm and 7.30pm, when a 26-year-old man was driving along Upper Mounts, before turning into St Michael's Road.
A small blue car was driving alongside him, to his right, when it suddenly cut in front of him and took the left turning into Overstone Road.
The man pulled over and got out to check his car, at which point a man approached the victim and began shouting racist abuse at him.
The offender then headbutted the victim, while continuing to shout racist abuse, at which point two members of the public intervened and the offender returned to the blue car, which he was a passenger in.
The car then drove off down Overstone Road.
The offender was a white man, around 50-years-old and 5ft 7" tall. He had greying, blonde short hair, grey/blue coloured eyes, of stocky build and was wearing a dark blue cardigan, light blue patched shirt, blue denim jeans and dark coloured shoes.
The woman driving the small blue car, which was possibly a Ford Fiesta, was white, between 45 and 55-years-old, with short blonde hair and had glasses hanging around her neck. She was wearing a green/brown cardigan.
Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this incident, specifically the two members of the public who intervened.
