Racist Attack In Southampton Park
Police are investigating after a 30-year-old man from Latvia was subjected to a racist attack in a Southampton park.
The man was walking through Palmerston Park near the back of Que Pasa when a man who was with two other men spoke to him asking for a cigarette. When he replied he didn’t have one the man made a comment about his accent and two of the men attacked him. He fell to the ground where he was kicked and punched.
The victim had to be treated in hospital for a deep cut to his head which needed stitches. He also had bruising to his face, arm and leg.
It happened at around 3.30am on Sunday, June 26. The main attacker is said to be aged in his early 20s, of medium build with short hair.
Officers are appealing for any witnesses who saw the incident or the lead up to it to contact them. They are asked to call PC Gavin Williams at Southampton Central Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A 31-year-old man from Southampton has been arrested in connection with the incident and released on police bail while enquiries continue until Thursday, July 21.
A section of Parkstone Road will be affected between 9.30am and 4.30pm for three days.
