The men started making offensive racist remarks after noticing she had a Korean heritage.

DS Ian Lawrence from Lancaster CID said: “This kind of behaviour is unacceptable and left the victim, a young woman from Korea, intimidated and in fear for her safety.

“Lancaster is a diverse city where these sorts of views and language are not welcome.

“If you recognise the description of the pair or know anything that could help us, please get in contact.”
