    They are appealing to find a witness who intervened in the incident

    Police investigating an alleged racially-aggravated public order offence in Plymouth are appealing for a witness said to have intervened in the incident to come forward.

    It happened in the Pizza King takeaway, in Radford Park Road, at around 9.30pm on Friday 29 May.

    The owner of the eatery has reported being subjected to racist abuse after asking a customer not to enter the premises due to one-in, one-out Covid-19 restrictions.

    It is believed an unknown male, who was present inside the takeaway, challenged the suspect.

    Police are keen to identify and speak with this person. 

    Enquiries are ongoing into the incident.

    Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101, or email 101@dc.police.uk, quoting crime reference CR/042863/20.
