Witness appeal following hate crime incident in Weybridge
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses following a report of a hate crime in Weybridge last month.
Officers were made aware of a report of a hate crime outside St George’s School in Thames Street, Weybridge, on Saturday, 29 May.
The victim was waiting outside the school at 3:30pm when he was approached by two men. One of the men then began verbally abusing him using racist language. The men then carried on walking down Thames Street.
PC Charlie Clement said: “Despite this happening just over a month ago, we are hoping that the public can help us with further information.
“There is a possibility that these men continued to walk down Thames Street, potentially abusing further victims, so if you have any further information or dashcam footage from the area around that time, then please get in touch.”
