Police hunt man after supermarket assault
10:50am Monday 25th June 2012 in News
This is the man police are hunting following an assault at a Southampton supermarket.
Officers want to speak to the man, who is described as black, six foot tall and in his late 20s to early 30s, after three members of staff were assaulted at Asda, in Portland Terrace.
A man became verbally and racially abusive to three members of staff at the store, at around 5.15pm on June 3.
He hit one member of staff in the arm and spat in the face of a second employee while he was at the checkouts.
Detectives are now appealing for information in their bid to trace the man, who they want to speak to in relation to the incident.
PC Chris Galpin said: “This was an unprovoked nasty assault on two members of staff who were just carrying out their normal duties as sales assistants within the store.
“The CCTV image of the suspect is extremely good and I would appeal to anyone who may recognise him, to get in contact with me at Southampton Central police station or call Crimestoppers anonymously.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
