2 and white, was with a woman who is accused of verbally assaulting the group by screaming racist abuse during the incident.

'He nearly pinned me up against the wall so I couldn't move then spat in my face. I tried to get help but the cleaner nearby ignored me. It's quite a lot for an 18-year-old to go through something like this, we were just trying to get home.

Aniso Abdulkadir reported the suspected hate crime on Twitter on Sunday, triggering an investigation into the matter.

The same man then pinned her friend, who was accompanying her, against a wall and degradingly spat on her.

The woman also put up a picture of her alleged attacker and pressed others to share the image so that the suspect could be identified.

An architect at the centre of a suspected hate crime has attempted to defend himself for allegedly trying to pull off a Muslim woman's hijab and spitting at her friend, saying his girlfriend was "attacked" first.

He said: Behaviour like this is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

'I'd just like to take a moment to emphasise on my disgust on the people who witnessed a grown man pull an 18 year olds hijab and remain silent.

"Believe me there were more than 20/30 people and not a single person helped, people just watched and filmed".
