Police are hunting three young racists who abused a woman at a York bus stop.
It happened at around 5.25pm last Friday (21 April).
Three teenage boys were seen acting in a threatening manner and using racist language towards a woman who was waiting at the Alcuin Avenue bus stop.
The woman targeted with the abuse felt so threatened by the boys’ behaviour, she approached another woman waiting for the bus and asked if she could wait with her.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “The women got onto the number 6 bus into York, as did the boys, who continued to act in a loud and aggressive manner, throwing rubbish at other bus passengers before leaving the bus at Stonebow House.”
The boys are described as around 13 to 14 years old.
The first boy is described as white , brown hair cut into a mullet-type hairstyle, wearing dark tracksuit bottoms, a dark blue jacket with a fur lined hood and a striped yellow polo shirt which had signatures on it.
The second boy is described as white, with short blonde hair and wearing a dark coloured tracksuit.
The third boy is described as white, with a chubby build, short blonde hair and wearing a matching light grey hoodie and jogging bottoms set.
