A man has been arrested following a racially aggravated incident in Lowestoft.
The incident happened at about 3.40am on Saturday in London Street North.
A 25-year-old man was walking home along the road when he saw three men walking towards him down Stanley Street, near to the Katwijck Way junction.
Believing the three men were acting suspiciously the man stopped and asked the men what they were doing at which point he was verbally racially abused by one of the men.
All three men then walked into Bevan Street West where two of the men collected bicycles and rode off.
Police have arrested a 22 year old man from Lowestoft in connection with this incident. He has been released on bail pending further enquiries.
He is due to return to the Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre on July 21.
