Woman racially abused by group of three "teenagers"

The Argus: Woman racially abused by group of three "teenagers" Woman racially abused by group of three "teenagers"

A woman was racially abused by a group of three people sitting on a bench. 

At about 6pm on Wednesday 11 June the 35-year old local woman was in Luxford Field, Uckfield, walking to the nearby Tesco store, when she was verbally abused by a group of three people who were sitting on a bench. 

All are described as white teenagers.

One was a girl with long hair dyed dark in colour but pulled back, and large hoop earrings.

The second suspect was also a girl, with short blonde hair in a bob cut and wearing a tracksuit. The third suspect was a boy, with short blond hair, of stocky build, and wearing a hooded top without sleeves - possibly pale orange in colour.

The victim is of Thai heritage, although the suspects referred to her as Chinese. PC Samantha Fee said; "This is an unusual incident for Uckfield and has been recorded as a hate crime which is a priority for the force to investigate.

It caused distress to the victim and we would like the help of local people in identifying this trio.

If you can help, please call us on 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

So being called the wrong nationality is now a hate crime?

It just shows how pathetic this country has become. The police have surely got better things to do.

Btw, who do I contact when I'm mistakenly referred to as being Irish?
