UK:Luton: Appeal after woman attacked/racially abused

A WOMAN in Luton was punched in the stomach and spat on during a racial attack in Wardown Park.
The 28-year-old victim was attacked on May 31 by a man who then got into a car with his wife and two children and drove off.
The woman had been in the Wardown Park children's play area, close to the ice cream hut, at around 6.30pm when she was asked to help a child who had got stuck on the climbing frame.
As she did so, two children started mocking the child and then started swearing and racially abusing the 28-year-old, who police said was a white woman wearing a head scarf.
The woman asked the children to stop swearing and then left the park with her sister and two children.
As she left the park, she was approached by a man who punched her in the stomach, causing her to fall to the floor and hit her head on the pavement.
He shouted racial abuse at her before punching her again as she tried to stand up.
The man then spat in the 28-year-old's face before walking off with his wife and two children towards Old Bedford Road where they got into a grey Audi and drove away from the area.
PC Jagjeet Dhillon, who is investigating the incident, is keen to speak with anyone who was in the park at the time and may have seen the assault taking place
PC Dhillon said: “This was vicious and seemingly unprovoked attack on a woman who merely asked two children in a play area to stop swearing. 
"Thankfully, the victim’s injuries were not too serious, but this offender is obviously a violent individual who was not afraid to use extreme measures in a public place and in front of young children.
“If anyone saw this incident taking place or may know who the offender is, please get in touch.
"Even the smallest piece of information could help us find this individual.”
Police have described the man as being an Asian male – believed to be Pakistani, in his late 30s or early 40s.
He was around 6ft tall, of muscular build, with very short shaved black hair and wearing a cream jumper or top with black stripes, navy blue jeans and white trainers with white marking.
If you have information relating to this incident, contact PC Dhillon, in confidence, on the non-emergency 101 number, or text information to 07786 200011.
Alternatively contact independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111, or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
