This is the moment two men hurl racist abuse at a teenager and threaten to ‘knock him out’ if he doesn’t get off the bus.

Trey Robinson, 17, says the pair were ‘staring’ at him on the number 89 bus towards Lewisham station, south London.

He recorded them asked if there was a ‘racial issue’, at which point the men says: ‘It’s not about racist bruv (sic). Get off the f*****g bus.’

As Mr Robinson walks down from the top deck, the men can be heard continuing to shout abuse and threatening to knock him out.

The sixth form student steps off onto the street and asks: ‘What are you doing? Why are you racially profiling me?’ One of the men then shouts back: ‘If you’re pulling the race card you might as well be a black c**t then.’

When asked what the confrontation was about, the man in the black tracksuit accuses Mr Robinson of ‘giving it to his brother’.

The teenager is then followed off the bus by one of the men who warns him he has ’30 seconds to leave’.

Mr Robinson said: ‘I believe I was racially abused. I was on the bus and being continuously stared at by an older white male, this was done around about five times within a 15-minute journey.

‘As I went to get off of the bus, he carried on staring at me so I then asked, ‘why are you still staring at me is there a problem?’

‘In the moment of the recording stopping he saw my phone in my right hand, and said something along the lines of, ‘you better stop recording me, yeah’.

The incident was thought to have taken place at around 2.30pm in in Shooter’s Hill, south east London.

The Metropolitan Police said they were aware of the footage.

A spokesman for the force said: ‘We are making efforts to contact the victim and would encourage any victim of racist abuse to report it to police.’
