Police have released the image of a man they wish to identify, following reports of racial abuse against Muslims in Plymouth. It is alleged that two men were near the Plymouth Islamic Education Trust in Greenbank Avenue, St Judes at 00.45am on Sunday 12th June 2016 and subjected a number of the members, including women and children to racial abuse as they left the premises.
One man, aged 45 from Crownhill, Plymouth, was arrested at the scene and has since been bailed until 8th July pending further enquiries.
The second man left the area prior to police arriving and is described as white, 5ft 6-8” tall, chubby build, 35-45 years of age with local accent. He was wearing a baseball cap and shorts and dark clothing, and is believed to be local to the St. Judes and Lipson area as he was walking his small brown dog during the time the incident took place.
Anyone who witnessed this incident or can help police identify the man in the image, is asked to contact police via emailing on 101@DC.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting crime reference CR/38779/16.
An attack on the Jamia Mosque in Totterdown in Bristol was videoed by the attackers themselves.
In the film you can see bacon sandwiches they threw at the building and a St George's Flag with the words "No Mosque" being tied to the railing.
You also hear them being challenged about why they were there. They reply "Because we don't want no mosques here".
