A mum and her two children were targeted by threats of violence and racial comments during a “particularly distressing” incident inside Asda, Peterborough on April 3.
The woman in her 30s was with her two children inside the store in Viersen Platz at about midday, when the incident happened.
They were near the lifts, going into the homeware section, when one of the children heard a nearby man swear at their mum.
They carried on around the corner, passed the photo desk and into the baking isle, when the same man approached them and made threats of violence and racial comments.
Detective Constable Pete Wise said: “This was a particularly distressing ordeal for the victim and her two children who were minding their own business, doing some shopping, when the incident happened.
