Metropolitan Police officers are appealing for witnesses following a "hate crime" incident which left a Polish community centre in Hammersmith covered in graffiti .
The force has also upped street patrols in the area to reassure residents who fear similar attacks in the wake of the EU Referendum decision for the UK to leave the European Union .
Officers were called to King Street at around 10.25am on Sunday (June 26) after offensive graffiti was daubed in bright yellow on the front of the Polish Social and Cultural Association.
Detectives have said the single male suspect involved has been captured on CCTV at the scene at 5.22am.
It shows him approach the location on a pedal cycle and stop outside before he is seen to spray yellow graffiti on the doors of the community centre, before making off on his bike.
He was wearing a orange jacket and grey hoodie.
PC Jenny Doe from Ravenscourt Park Safer Neighbourhood Team said: "We have an excellent rapport with this Polish community Centre and have been very clear in terms of how serious we take such incidents of hate crime.
"High visibility foot patrols have been stepped up in the area and we are doing everything to reassure them and other local community groups in and around the area that we are here and will deal with any allegations of hate crime robustly and efficiently."
This incident is being treated as a hate crime due to the racially aggravated nature of the criminal damage.
Communities have been told not to be fearful after MPs revealed they had been contacted by residents in tears due to fears of racially motivated hate crimes.
