Police have appealed for help to trace two men who may have witnessed an alleged racist attack in Leeds.
British Transport Police have taken the unusual step of releasing an image of the witnesses they believe may have vital information about the attack which left two victims in hospital.
It took place at Hot Stuff takeaway, under Leeds railway arches, at about 3.30am on Monday, August 19, when two men who were working at the takeaway were allegedly racially abused by a group of six men. Police say the men were asked to leave and an altercation then took place which left both staff members with facial injuries which needed hospital treatment.
Det Insp Mick Jackson, investigating the incident, said: “We have identified the six men who were involved in the incident. They are from the Leicestershire area and will be spoken to by officers in due course. Today, I am appealing to identify the two men pictured who, I must stress were not involved in this incident. We believe they may have vital information in relation to this investigation, which is why I have taken the unusual step of releasing their image.”
