Racist mugging in Potters Bar

TWO men were racially abused and robbed by a gang in Potters Bar.

The pair, both in their 20s, were targeted by a group of four yobs in The Walk.

They were subject to racial abuse and were then told to hand over their possessions – handing over their mobile phones, watches and gold jewellery.

They were also searched for any other possessions before the thugs fled in an unknown direction.

The first robber was described as black, in his early 20s, of slim build and around 5ft 10ins.
