Lancaster student racially abused

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

We are appealing for information after a student was racially abused in Lancaster.

The woman, 21, was enjoying a night out with friends in the city when at shortly before 1.40am, they have been shouted at from behind by two men wearing suits on Swan Yard.

On noticing that one of the women is of Korean heritage, they have then started making offensive racist remarks at her.

DS Ian Lawrence from Lancaster CID said: “This kind of behaviour is unacceptable and left the victim, a young woman from Korea, intimidated and in fear for her safety.
“Lancaster is a diverse city where these sorts of views and language are not welcome.
“If you recognise the description of the pair or know anything that could help us, please get in contact.”

One of them was white, around 5ft 8ins, of slim build with blonde hair and was wearing a white shirt, black trousers and a black tie.

The second is described as white, of large build, approximately 5ft 5ins, with dark brown hair and was dressed in a grey suit with a white shirt and black shoes.

Anyone with information can call 01524 596457 or if they fail to get an answer, 101, quoting incident reference 0076 of March 13th.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555111 or online
