UK authorities are looking for a group of three 'Asian men' after they yelled racist slurs and attacked a white woman at the Coventry Skydome. Some of the attack was caught on CCTV footage, which shows the woman holding her face and her boyfriend trying to protect her from the attackers.
According to reports, the men, who appeared to be of South-Asian heritage, began verbally assaulting the woman for her outfit and shouted some offensive racist remarks. The lady was sporting a short dress and thigh-high boots. She immediately stood up for herself against the men, and the attack turned physical.
The men broke the woman's nose and allegedly shoved her boyfriend forcefully. At that point, those involved in the incident stumbled into view of the camera.
Police released the video, which shows the man jumping between the woman and the most aggressive of the attackers. The boyfriend, much smaller than the three suspects, struggled to defend himself and his girlfriend.
There was a scuffle between the boyfriend and the attackers, then security guards swooped in and broke up the fight.
“We have released CCTV and are appealing for information following an assault at Coventry Skydome on 11 December 2016,” said a spokesperson for the West Midlands Police in a statement. "A 34-year-old woman was walking home from a night out with her partner when a group of three men shouted a racist comment at her. When she tried to confront them she was assaulted and sustained fractures to her nose and cheekbone."
Police urge anyone with information about this particular hate crime to come forward.
Violent crimes by minorities against white people are rising in the UK; however, the situation stirs much controversy. There is a large portion of the population who believe that only white people can be racist, and that when people of color attack white people for being white, it’s somehow not racist. One thing is clear though: anytime one person attacks another for nothing more than the way he or she looks, it’s a big problem for society.
