We’re appealing for witnesses after receiving a report that two men were racially abused outside the Royal Derby Hospital on Saturday, May 25.
The incident is thought to have happened at around 7.15pm near the main reception of the hospital in Uttoxeter Road, Derby. The victims were approached by two men who were racially abusive towards them.
The suspects are described as white, with tanned skin, and both in their thirties. One of the men had a bald head and a beard, and both were wearing high visibility vests, and drinking cans of beer.
We are also currently trying to trace the victims of this incident, who are described as Asian. One of them is understood to have been older than the other and in a wheelchair. It is thought the younger man may be a relative or friend.
