Police have released images of a man they would like to speak to after a model from Kensal Green was racially abused at a Tube station.
Mahaneela Choudhury-Reid was subjected to the unprovoked tirade by a smartly-dressed commuter at Regent’s Park station.
The 21-year-old was targeted on Wednesday at around 10.30am as she left the station via a lift.
She took to social networking site Twitter about her ordeal tweeting that after the man kicked and pushed her he called her a f****** n***** before walking away.
Ms Choudhury-Reid also claimed commuters who witnessed the abuse did nothing.
She added: “People need to stand up to any kind of violent/racist acts that they see- and stamp out this kind of discrimination. Don’t just think someone else will handle the situation.”
