Gloucestershire Constabulary is appealing for witnesses following a racially aggravated incident in Wotton Under Edge last weekend.
It was reported that a man entered Tesco Express on Long Street at around 6.20pm on Sunday (6 June) and attempted to buy a bottle of wine but was refused by an employee for already being intoxicated.
He began to get angry and went on to buy cigarettes but his card was declined and he attempted to leave without paying.
The employee stopped the man who went on to shout a number of racially abuse comments at them.
A number of members of the public were in the shop at the time and investigating officers are asking anyone who witnessed this taking place to please come forward.
Information can be submitted by completing the following online form and quoting incident 367 of 6 June: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/contact/af/contact-us/us/a-crime-that-has-already-been-reported/
Alternatively you can call 101 and quote the same incident number.
A 49-year-old man of no fixed abode was arrested in connection with the incident and has since been released on bail until the end of this month.
