A YOB racially abused a man and followed him as he tried to do his shopping.

The man shouted racist comment at the 60-year-old victim as he left a supermarket.

Then he followed him as he walked away down the street and into another store, continuing the abuse.

The incident happened in London Road, St Leonards, as the man was leaving a Co-op store.

PC Candace Ferguson said: “We are looking for any witnesses who were in that area early on Friday evening and who may have heard or seen what happened.

“If you can help please contact us online or by calling 101, quoting serial 1083 of 01/01.”

A 36-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated words and harassment. After being interviewed he was released under investigation.
