A DISABLED busker was racially abused and harangued as he plied his trade in the centre of York.

The victim, an eastern European in his mid to late 20s who has no legs, was sitting on his skateboard busking on Coney Street when the incident happened on Saturday, April 26.

At about noon he was approached by a man who abused him and kicked over his belongings, before some members of the public intervened and the abusive man left the scene.

Police are now appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident to contact them with information.

Contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option two and ask for PC Fiona Wilding or York police. Alternatively, information can be emailed to fiona.wilding@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
