Local police say they are appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery in the Bradley Stoke area last weekend.
The incident happened between 10.30pm and 10.45pm outside 55-57 Oaktree Crescent on Saturday (8th March) when a man approached a number of Asian people and was racially abusive and threatening before asking them for money.
When they refused, he threw the contents (beer) in a can or bottle he was holding, over them. Nothing was taken during the incident but it was viewed as an unpleasant and unprovoked attack.
The suspect is described as a white man, who was wearing black shorts and a black hooded top and black cap.
Officers say they are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident who may have information to help with enquiries or might have seen someone matching the description of the suspect.
Anyone able to help is asked to contact the hate crime unit at Staple Hill police station on the force number 101, quoting reference 24042/14.
