Thug spits at boy, 2, and calls him ‘p**i’ in sick racist attack

A thug spat at a two-year-old boy, called him a “p**i”, and threatened to “smash his head on the pavement” in a vile racist attack.

Yasmin Johal was pushing son Remy in his pram through Nottingham on Sunday when the disturbing attack unfolded.

She said the man threatened to "pull him out that pushchair” on a busy street.

Yasmin, a vlogger, tweeted: “How am I supposed to leave the house every day with my baby and not be terrified of every white man I come across?

“This is twice in two months I've had to go to the police now.

“The long term damage this will do to me is something he probably didn't even think about. Or maybe he did."

She added: “These people are ruthless, they're not scared of anything. they're proud of being racist & truly believe we don't belong here.

“I’m sick of it, I really don't feel safe here anymore.

Twitter users said described the attack as "disgusting" and "abhorrent".

One wrote: "No single person has the right to say the UK isn't a racist country when things like this happen daily. I'm so so sorry this happened to you."

Superintendent Matthew McFarlane, Nottinghamshire Police's force lead on hate crime, added: "Racially aggravated public order offences like these are not acceptable.

"This is an awful incident, I fail to comprehend how anyone can abuse and spit at a child like this. Officers are now working hard to try to track down the individual involved.

"Racist incidents will not be tolerated in Nottinghamshire and a lot of work is continuing across the county so we confront issues like these head-on.

"If anyone saw the incident or has any information please call 101 quoting incident number 510 of 1 March 2020."
