Detectives investigating an allegation of racial abuse are appealing for help to identify four men.
At around 8:55pm on Sunday, 24 May, the female victim, who is aged mid-20s, was walking on Hampstead Heath, NW5 when she was approached by four men.
They attempted to engage with the victim, near the Highgate Men’s Pond, but she declined to stop and continued walking away from them. At this point they began a verbal torrent of racial abuse.
The victim was upset and shocked by the abuse and was able to capture footage of the suspects as they walked away.
Police have released CCTV stills of the four people they wish to identify and speak with.
Detective Sergeant Sam O’Callaghan, investigating, said: “For four men to verbally attack a lone female is beyond cowardly. The incident has left the victim shaken and nervous of being outside alone. If you can name any of the males shown in the images, or if you witnessed the incident but haven’t yet spoken with police, please contact us immediately.”
