Lincoln man racially abused twice in one day by teenager and cyclist who knocked him over

Lincolnshire Police have appealed for information after two racially aggravated incidents in one day in Lincoln city centre, both involving the same victim.

The first incident at around 7.25am on Friday, March 4, saw a Lincoln man knocked over by a cyclist outside the Blue Anchor pub on High Street.

After being challenged, the cyclist proceeded to racially abuse the victim.

Later on the same day, at around 4.30pm, the same victim was walking outside the International Food Store on High Street when a different man, thought to be aged around 16, approached him and blew smoke in his face from an e-cigarette before racially abusing him.

There are no descriptions of either man involved and Lincolnshire Police would like to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time and thinks they may have any information that could help with the investigation.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Lincolnshire Police on 101 quoting incident 80 of March 4.

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