POLICE have released images of a man they wish to speak to after a disabled busker was abused in the street.

The victim was an eastern European who has no legs and he was sitting on his skateboard busking when the incident happened in Coney Street, York, last Saturday, April 26.

He was approached by a man at about noon who abused him and kicked over his belongings before leaving the scene when other people intervened.
