POLICE have released these pictures of two people they want to speak to after a racially aggravated assault.

The incident happened around 4.45pm on July 22.

The victim was on the number 57/58 Diamond bus which was on Church Hill Way in Redditch, when she was subjected to a racist verbal assault by a man and women. This was followed by them spitting at the victim and then hitting her.

PC George Bednall said: “We take all reports of hate crime very seriously – no-one should be targeted for being themselves and we never underestimate the devastating effect being a victim of a hate crime can have on people.

“I know this incident happened some time ago, but I’d ask you to cast your mind back and if you have any information about the incident or know who the two people are in the pictures, I urge you to contact me”.

Witnesses or anyone with information should email PC Bednall at [email protected] or call him 101, using the extension 7783384.
