Attacked for asking men about Nazi symbols on their faces

SUSPECTS: Do you know these men?

POLICE HAVE released CCTV images of three men believed to have been involved in a suspected racist attack on a train in Worthing, Sussex, last month.

During the incident on November 1, a 41-year-old male victim was allegedly racially abused and assaulted when he asked the three white suspects why they had swastikas, a symbol of racial hate, drawn on their cheeks.

One of the suspects can be seen punching the victim in the face as he tries to exit the train at Worthing station, causing minor injuries to his eye.

After the attack the men fled the train, but boarded a later train having removed the swastikas from their faces.

They were last seen leaving Fishergate station, East Sussex, at around 11.30pm.

Inspector Gary Ancell said: “We’ve made local enquiries to try and get names for these three, but without luck so far. It isn’t altogether clear why the victim was attacked but we will do all we can to catch the person responsible."

“The facial images from CCTV are pretty clear, and I am confident that someone will recognise one of these men and tell us who they are. If you have any information that could help our investigation we want to hear from you,” he added.

Anyone who recognises the men or who has information about the incident should contact BTP on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference B13/LSA of 16/12/11
