Lincoln man racially abused in city centre shop

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 58-year-old Lincoln man was racially abused in a health and beauty shop in the city centre.

The man was shopping in Savers on Sincil Street at around 2.30pm on Saturday, August 15 when he was involved in a verbal altercation with a woman, who was also with another man and woman.

This led to a racially aggravated comment being made to the victim.

A number of other shoppers in the store at the time and officers investigating the incident would like to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard what happened.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident 270 of August 15.

Alternatively, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
