Avon and Somerset police have released a series of CCTV images to the public to help them catch a man who spat on a woman in Bristol.

The victim, a 36-year-old Muslim woman, was walking through Cabot Circus at about 8.40pm on Monday, July 21, when the man spat at her and verbally abused her.

Investigating officer PC Hannah King said: “We are issuing several images of a man we want to speak to about this incident, which we are treating as a hate crime.

“The victim was left shaken and distressed by the ordeal and we hope by releasing these images, someone will come forward with information which will help us identify who this man is.”
