South Yorkshire Police have made an arrest following a racially aggravated offence.

Following social media discussions, Tell MAMA staff spoke with contacts in the force to confirm the details of the offence and reassure communities that the police are investigating.

In the early hours of this morning (July 13), a takeaway delivery driver had arrived at an address in the Masborough area where the occupants took the food but refused to pay.

The owner of the business then visited the address to recover the costs of the food delivered.

An occupant then verbally abused him and spat at him.

After reporting the incident to South Yorkshire Police, officers soon attended the address and have made an arrest.

He is now being processed.

We will update communities on this matter when updates are given.
