THIS is the face of the man police want to quiz over a city robbery.

Police released an e-fit image after a 27-year-old man was accosted and racially abused in Shirley High Street.

The victim was walking towards Cash Convertors at around 3pm when another man approached him and pulled off his necklace, before walking off towards McDonalds.

The attacker was described as white, aged between 30-40, between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 10ins tall, of slim build, with blonde, messy hair, prominent cheek bones, unshaven with blonde stubble and wearing a horizontal striped t-shirt.

Police Staff Investigator Marta Drozd, said: “The victim sustained minor injuries to his neck as a result of the offender pulling the necklace off, which was of sentimental value to the victim."

Anyone with information should contact PSI Drozd at Shirley police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Er, the abuse element of the crime maybe? I realise that you're trying to make a point about some kind of 'myth' of racism from your point of view, but I'm sure most readers can understand from the report that the attacker probably directed a racial epithet of some description towards the victim during the attack. It doesn't need to be spelled out just to satisfy you.
