Police are seeking information from the public after an unprovoked racial attack on a woman from Hythe in her own back garden.
While her young children slept upstairs, the woman, 33, went to her garden at Beech Crescent to find her cat at about 10pm Wednesday 23rd October.
She was grabbed by a man hiding behind her gazebo sheeting and felt an unknown object held to her throat.
Two other men were seen, and all three men hit the woman in the face, causing bruising and cuts.
They whispered abuse of a racist nature to her. They knew the names of her children and threatened her and the children, if she went to the police.
All three men had English accents. They wore dark clothing and covered their faces with dark masks with the eye holes cut out.
I was pulled the other side of the sheeting directly behind the patio doors. I immediately felt something pushing against my throat, and I was paralysed by fear. I just wanted to get away, but could not shout through fear.
