Racial Abuse At Wellington Restaurant
Police are appealing for witnesses after they received a report that a member of staff at a Wellington restaurant was racially abused on Friday evening (19 October).
At around 8.10pm, two men and a teenage boy went into Spiceland restaurant on Market Street to confront a member of staff about an ongoing dispute. This escalated into a heated argument, in which the Asian restaurant worker was repeatedly racially abused, officers have been told.
