A woman has been verbally abused by a group of teenage boys in a racially aggravated incident in Southwold.
The woman, in her 60s, was walking her dog across St Edmund’s Green, adjacent to Field Stile Road, sometime between 1.45pm and 2.45pm on Wednesday, September 2.
She was approached by three boys on bicycles and they began to talk in an accent which the woman believed was to mock her ethnicity.
They followed her out of the park onto Cumberland Road shouting and being abusive while using the same accent.
Other members of the public were present at this point so the boys then cycled off.
