Victim 'knocked to the ground' as he was punched in the head

A 47-year-old man was punched twice in what is thought to be a racially-aggravated assault.

The man was walking down Graham Road towards Derby Road last Friday evening. He passed a group of about 10 men when one of them asked him, "Are you foreign?"

The victim continued walking but was punched in the side of the head, knocking him to the ground. He got up but was then punched again.

Anyone who witnessed the assault or has information should contact PC Claire Sheehy at Southampton Central on 101.
