POLICE are hunting for a man wanted in connection with a racist attack at a shop.

At 11.45am on Saturday (January 12) police were called to Boughton Convenience Store in Boughton, Chester after reports of a racist attack.

Two men allegedly entered the shop before one of the men became aggressive and started shouting racist and abusive language at staff and the shop manager.

Police are now hunting for a white male, who is described as being 5ft 7in with fair ginger hair and wearing a black long sleeved zip-up coat, and distinctive grey shoes.

Sergeant Andy Burrage, of Chester Inner Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “The CCTV shows clear images of the offender and somebody must know who he is.

“I ask anybody who is able to identify him to call Cheshire police on 101 quoting reference CC13010339, or ask to speak to the officer running the case, PC Jen Gort. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted in confidence on 0800 555 111.

“Racial abuse will not be tolerated and officers are committed to identifying and dealing with the male responsible in this case.”
