Witnesses are sought by officers investigating allegations a woman and her children were racially abused in Maidstone.

It is reported a man used abusive language during a row at a McDonald’s drive-through in Hart Street. The incident happened at around 11.30pm on Friday 12 March 2021.

The man and woman were in different vehicles and became involved in a traffic dispute as they were queueing to be served.

The suspect, who was a passenger in a red Vauxhall Corsa, is alleged to have got out of the vehicle to confront the victim in her black Audi, before using racist language towards her and her children.

A man known to the victim then challenged him, before staff intervened and both parties went their separate ways.

Officers are appealing to anyone who was in the area and who may have seen the incident to contact them. Anyone with dashcam which may assist the investigation is also asked to check footage.

The suspect was in his 20s, around 5ft 10ins tall and wearing a grey jumper and what were described as tradesman’s work trousers.

If you have information which may assist the investigation call Kent Police on 01622 604100, quoting reference 46/40571/21. You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, or by using the online form.
