An 11-year-old boy was ‘left upset and shaken’ after he was racially abused in Salisbury.
It happened at around 8.35am on Monday in Parsonage Green, Harnham.
The boy was approached by a man who remonstrated with him and made comments which we believe were racially-motivated. He was not injured in any way but was left upset and shaken by what happened.
PC Andy Windsor, from Salisbury Community Policing Team, said: “This is a very disturbing incident where a grown man has spoken to this child in a very derogatory and offensive way.
“We know it will have been busy in the area around the time of the incident, so are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
