Racist graffiti daubed on Honiton pub

Hate crime on The Volunteer

Racist graffiti has been painted on the wall of an East Devon pub.

The Volunteer on Honiton’s High Street, was daubed with hate crime messages on Wednesday evening.

Police are particularly keen to hear from a man and a woman with a bicycle, who they believe may have seen the suspect around 5.30 p.m. on 22 September. Any drivers who went past around that time are also asked to come forward.

The suspect is a white man, aged between 25 and 30, of stocky build and was carrying what looked like a dark coloured holdall or bag. He was wearing dark clothing including a long sleeve top. He came from the general direction of Mill Street and left in the same direction.

If you witnessed the incident, have any information or dashcam footage that could help the police with their enquiries, email 101@dc.police.uk or call 101, quoting crime reference CR/082308/21.

Alternatively, information can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or via the charity’s website at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
