Woman identified in racial abuse incident in Tilgate Park Crawley

A woman dog walker who police wanted to talk to her about an alleged racial abuse incident directed at another dog walker in a Crawley park has come forward.



Officers released an image of a woman who was walking her Chihuahua dog in a bid to identify her. Just after 4pm on Wednesday 19 June, the victim of the abuse, a local woman, was walking her own dog in Tilgate Park, when the Chihuahua came up to them.

It was reported that the Chihuahua owner then came up to her own dog, kicking it hard across the grass several times and causing it obvious distress.

When the other dog owner remonstrated with her for this cruelty, the woman racially abused her

Sergeant Matt Chapman said:

“A woman has come forward and made contact with us and we will be speaking to her about the alleged incident in due course.”
