Alleged racial incident at St Albans supermarket
DETECTIVES have released CCTV images of a man they believe may have information about a race-related incident at a St Albans supermarket.
The alleged incident took place at the Tesco store, on St Brelades, on March 23.
Just before the store closed at 11pm, offenders are said to have forced their way through the doors of the shop as the final customers were about to leave.
They then made their way to the alcohol aisle before being asked to leave as the shop was closed. One of the men is then said to have shouted racial abuse at the victim, before assaulting him and leaving the store.
Det Con Maria Gallucci, from St Albans police station, who is investigating the incident, has urged anyone with information to get in touch.
