A RACIST attacker who punched a man in the face after an EDL march in Farnworth is being searched for by police.
The 19-year-old victim was sat in his car outside a fast food shop in Bradshawgate when he was racially abused.
He got out of his car and was punched in the face, leaving him with a cut near his eye. Witnesses intervened and the attackers ran off.
Police are appealing for the public to help them identify a man believed to have been involved.
The incident happened on Monday, August 26, last year, after an EDL march in Farnworth.
Det Con Gary Knox said: “From what we know, we believe this man had attended an EDL march earlier that day before drinking at a pub in the town centre.
"Following the incident, we believe he has caught a train and got off in the Preston area.
“Thankfully, the victim did not receive a serious injury and was treated in hospital with a cut.
“I would ask people to take a good look at the image and if they recognise him, to contact police.”
