The incident occurred between 9.20pm and 9.27pm on Wednesday (18 September).

Officers say the victim, who is from Aldershot, had taken his son out to let him ride his electric car on the pavement.

They were both stood by the information building at Aldershot Bus Station when they were approached by a white male.

When they decided to head home they were followed by the male and as they turned left from Station Road onto The Grove the man stood in front of the child’s car.

The suspect then asked the victim where he was from and when he said he was from Poland the man was racially abusive.

Having continued to follow the victim he then assaulted him by punching him in the face.

The father and son continued towards their block of flats but the man followed them into the communal area and then became aggressive, causing damage to their front door.

He left but damage was also caused to the communal door, causing the glass to smash.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s or 40s, approximately 5ft 7ins tall, of medium build but with a big stomach.

He was wearing a dark blue hoody and dark jeans. Under his hoody, he was wearing a grey t-shirt with pink writing on. He was also carrying a can of beer.
