A Muslim man was abused by a yob who stole his religious hat.

The 37-year-old, who lives in Preston, was shopping with his family at Asda, Fulwood, when a man snatched his Topi hat from him before threatening and verbally abusing him.

Chief Insp Paul Wilson, of Preston Police, said: "Preston is a city in which racial and religious harmony is respected and this individual's actions are a blight upon what is a tolerant city."
