We have received an alleged eye witness account of an assault that took place yesterday afternoon at approximately 3:30pm (12/05/19). The witness claims that there was a racially motivated assault of a teenage girl in a South Harrow park.
“Yesterday a 16 year old girl was violently attacked for being black in Drake Park by the travellers that have moved in there. She was beaten with a bat, scooter and fists by a man twice her age and build. The police were called but he was not arrested and they are still there. It’s not right but thank god we got the girl out of there”
The account continues – “he beat the poor girl. If I wasn’t there I would hate to think what would of happened to her. He stopped chasing her because he saw me run towards her.”
We contacted Harrow MPS for their further information who replied with the following- “Police attended to and spoke with a juvenile victim of assault. A crime report has been taken. An initial search of the area for the suspect identified no one linked to the incident so other lines of enquiry are being followed.“
