Detectives in Brent Borough are appealing for witnesses and information after a woman was assaulted and suffered racial abuse at a bus stop in Wembley.

The allegation, which amounts to racially aggravated common assault, was made to police on 4 August and related to an incident at a bus stop in High Road, Wembley on Saturday, 2 August.

It is alleged that as the victim was waiting for a bus she was hit on the head by one suspect with some sort of plastic rod, who then ran off.

She was then racially abused by a second suspect.

The first suspect is described as a white man aged approx 25-30 around 5ft 11ins tall, the second is also described as a white man, aged approx. 35-40 and around 5ft 9ins tall.

It is believed the two suspects were part of a group of 5-6 men who then made off from the scene together.

Local Authority CCTV has been checked and it did not capture the incident. CCTV enquiries continue in Wembley High Rd to see whether any other CCTV belonging to local shops has captured the incident.

Officers will continue to examine the local authority CCTV in an effort to identify the perpetrators

Any witnesses or anyone with any information that could assist police can contact Brent Borough CID via 101, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via crimestoppers-uk.org.
