Police are appealing for information about a racially aggravated assault in Patchway, north Bristol.

It happened at 6am on Sunday 5th December near the Texaco service station on the A38 Gloucester Road.

Two men asked a 28-year-old Polish man for directions. When he replied they racially abused him, chased him and one of them punched him in the head.

The victim managed to get into his house on Gloucester Road and close the front door. A few minutes later one of the men returned and smashed a glass panel in the door.

Both men are white and aged between 23 and 30. One is described as big and of muscular build with a thick-set neck. He was 6ft tall with short light hair, slightly longer on top, and was wearing a white or light-coloured T-shirt. He would have had a split lip or blood on his mouth.

The second man is also of big build with dark hair. He is described as having piercing blue or green eyes, and was wearing dark clothing.

Anyone who knows the men or has any information is asked to contact the Hate Crime unit at Staple Hill police station on 0845 456 7000. Alternatively, call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
