Police have arrested a man on suspicion of a “racially aggravated assault” on a pregnant woman who has since lost her unborn child.
A 37-year-old man from Milton Keynes has been detained and remains in custody.
The 34-year-old victim was shopping in Milton Keynes when a man racially insulted her and kicked her in the torso, the BBC reports.
Yesterday, Thames Valley Police released a CCTV image of a man they wanted to speak to in relation to the incident which happened on August 6.
After following the victim to her car, the suspect also assaulted a 40-year-old man by hitting him over the head with a bag of ice and a bottle.
Both victims were taken to hospital and later discharged, but it has later been found that the female victim devastatingly lost her baby.
PC Richard Armitage said:
This racially aggravated assault had absolutely devastating consequences for the victim, who lost her baby as a result of the attack.
Our thoughts are with her and her family at this incredibly difficult and sad time.
