Police in Waltham Forest are investigating two incidents where Asian women had confrontations with white men in the borough. But they have said their investigation is being complicated because of 'misleading' stories circulating on social media.
Misleading rumours on social media are complicating & distracting resources. This is interfering in the investigation of these incidents.
Police believe the two incidents are not linked. Both happened in the same area near Boundary Road. On the 5th of December, a woman was pushed to the ground by a white male. Five days later, another woman was racially abused by three white men. However, police are concerned that comments on social media could bring people to the area and inflame the situation.
We ask that people from outside the boundary rd area stay away so police can concentrate fully on locating the suspects for these incidents.
No arrests have been made and police say they are working with local community groups to reassure residents.
