Officers are appealing for information and witnesses following an incident in Bishop’s Stortford.
At around 6.10pm on Thursday 4 January, three teenage boys approached a woman in her twenties in Sainsbury’s, Jackson Square.
One of the boys grabbed her hat from her head and threw it to the ground. After she picked it up, they did it again.
The boys then waited outside of Jackson Square for the victim and one of them proceeded to chase her down The Dells.
Officers are treating the incident as racially aggravated.
The three suspects are described as white and aged around 15 to 16 years old. They were wearing black beanie hats.
PC Sam Hodges, who is investigating, said: “This incident is being treated as racially aggravated. Please be assured we are providing her with support.
“We are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to get in touch. It is understood that a number of witnesses saw the incident take place in Sainsburys so we would like to hear from you.
“The incident outside the shop happened within The Dells near The Party Box. If you were there and saw what happened, please get in touch.
