They then left in the direction of Shortmead Street.

All four men are believed to be white.

The fourth man is also described as slim and 6ft tall. He was wearing grey jogging bottoms, white Nike Air Max trainers, and had a tattoo on his neck.

Detective Constable Tracey Litchfield, investigating, said: “This was a nasty, unprovoked incident, which has left the victim understandably shaken. We will not tolerate violence, and this attack is even more pungent as we believe that it was motivated by race.

“No-one should ever have to face abuse because of who they are as a person and we are committed to tackling hate crime.

“I’d appeal for anyone who witnessed the incident or who recognises the description of the four attackers to get in touch to assist with our investigation.”

Anyone with information should contact DC Litchfield on 101 quoting JD/1877/17.
