Pregnant woman punched in racist attack

Police are appealing for information following a racist attack, in Stroud Green last month, on an Asian woman who was days away from giving birth.

The 32-year-old mother, was taking a walk with her partner and their young child at around 2.15pm along Ferme Park Road, Stroud Green, near the junction with Stapleton Hall Road, on Sunday, 4 November.

The couple were approached by two white men who started hurling racist abuse at them.

Without any provocation, one of the men punched the heavily pregnant woman directly in the face and, after a scuffle, ran off in the direction of Parkland Walk.

Police were called to the scene by a concerned member of the public but despite searching the surrounding area were not able to find the suspects.

Detective Sergeant Sonia Christensen said: “It is unusual for a heavilly pregnant woman, out with her family, to be the victim of such an unprovoked assault.

“We are pursuing every line of enquiry to apprehend the suspects.”

The woman, who has since given birth, suffered a sore face but was otherwise unharmed and did not require any hospital treatment.

Anyone with information should contact DS Sonia Christensen of the Community Safety Unit on 020 8345 1939.
