Police are appealing for witnesses to a racially aggravated public order offence which took place at a car park in Ravenside Retail Park, Bexhill, around 4.40pm on Thursday, December 22.
The victims, a man and woman, were racially abused by two men who challenged them about parking in a disabled parking bay.
The first man is described as being between 50 - 60 years old, around 5’10”, medium build and was wearing a dark woollen jumper.
He is said to have shouted racial abuse at the man before walking in the direction of Poundland.
After the first suspect made off a second man in a red pick up truck also made a gesture with a racial connotation towards them.
The second man is described as a white male, 50 - 60 years old, 5ft10, medium build and was wearing a grey jumper underneath a black hoodie.

Both men have been released on police bail with conditions until March 23, pending further enquiries.
Anyone who witnessed the altercations or has information which could help officers with their investigation is asked to report it to police online or call 101 quoting serial number 960 of 22/12.
This information can also be reported to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555111.
