Witness appeal following racially-aggravated verbal assault in Walton
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses after a paramedic was subjected to a racially-aggravated verbal assault and threatened on duty in Walton.
South East Coast Ambulance Service was called to a 39-year-old man complaining of abdominal pain at the Elmbridge Xcel Leisure Complex on Waterside Drive in Walton on Wednesday 26 May. They arrived at around 10.50pm and found the man and his friend at the location.
Paramedics attempted to treat the man, but he was reluctant to disclose his medical information. He and his friend then swore at the paramedic trying to treat them. He also used racially abusive language and threatened to kill her.
The paramedic was not physically harmed during this incident.
The first suspect was described as White, around 5 ft 11 tall with an overweight build and brown hair.
The second suspect was described as White, with a slender build, brown hair and stubble.
Our enquiries are ongoing and we have obtained the below CCTV of the second man involved. Do you recognise him?
