Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a security guard was attacked at an Oldbury supermarket.
The 44-year-old man was ushering a group of young people out of Sainsbury’s in Freeth Street when one of them made a racist comment and punched him in the face.
Police want to talk to a man regarding the incident, who is described as black, around 5ft 6ins tall, aged 17 to 18, medium build with short cropped black hair, clean shaven and spoke with a local accent.
This was a completely unacceptable attack on a man who was just trying to carry out his job.
“Crimes like this will not be tolerated and we need members of the public to come forward and help with our investigation.
“If you recognise the young man pictured or if you were at the shop at the time and witnessed what happened please call us now on 101.”
The attack happened at around 5.45pm on Saturday 23 May.

He added that Mr Richards was a "popular lad" and an active member of Birmingham County FA youth council.
He was a young talented referee with the world at his feet. He was highly thought of and will be sadly missed.

Birmingham's iconic fountain, known as the Floozie in the Jacuzzi, is being filled with flowers. It was built in 1993 at a cost of £3.5 million.
In 2010, £300,000 pounds was spent fixing leaking pipes and installing new coloured lighting. But three years later the landmark was turned off again.
The council says the flowers are temporary - until more work can be done to find out what's wrong.
