A man of Portuguese descent has been the victim of a racially motivated attack in Ipswich town centre.
Police are appealing for information after the man, 34, had his ankle broken in an assault which took place in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
The victim, who lives in Ipswich, was walking home along Eagle Street when he was approached by three men.
An insult was shouted at the man and he was pushed to the ground and kicked, which caused his ankle to break.
His attackers then fled and he managed to get home before attending Ipswich Hospital where police were called.
The men were described as white, one had spiky hair and another was wearing a baseball hat.
Police will be speaking to the victim again to try to gain more details of the incident but at this stage, it is being treated as a racially motivated attack.
Anyone with information should contact Ipswich Police Station.
