Shop worker suffers broken nose after gang attack at New Look in Southampton

Daily Echo: CCTV from the attack in New Look in Shirley CCTV from the attack in New Look in Shirley

A SHOP worker suffered a broken nose after she was attacked by a gang she caught trying to steal from her store.

The 44-year-old member of staff at New Look, in Shirley High Street, spotted a young woman in the group trying to steal items.

The victim asked them to leave but they started shouting at her and three of the youths began attacking her, punching and pushing her eventually knocking her to the floor.

It was only when another customer in the store managed to push them out of the door that they were forced out.

The woman suffered a broken nose in the incident and had to receive medical treatment.

Now officers want to speak to the three people that can be seen in these CCTV stills about the shocking attack.

They are the woman in the stripy jumper, the woman in the grey cardigan and the man in the grey tracksuit.

They are all thought to be aged between their late teens and early twenties.

Officers are also trying to trace the younger female in the red coat shown in one of the CCTV pictures.

She appeared to be with the group but did not take part in any of the incident. Officers would like her to come forward and speak to them.

They would also like to hear from anyone who knows who any of the group are.

Anyone with information is asked to call PC Lou Wright at Shirley Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Its all very well the police appealing for 'the younger female in the red coat shown in one of the CCTV pictures' to come forward and speak to them but, do the police really think that she or any of her 'mates' will be reading this? They are thieves not, readers of 'bought' newspapers or in deed online newspapers. They probably can't even read except, enough to claim benefits and buy dodgy clothes and imported baccy!

According to the report, the girl in the red jacket APPEARED to be with the group, which to my mind means that they cannot be certain, and would like to contact her to eliminate her from the investigation or as a witness to help identify.

Don't fret any- the local uniform and CID will already know this pondlife. The reality is that most low class pondlife commit crimes on their own patch where they are known to all and sundry in particular the local Police. Intellect has never been an all encompassing characteristic of crooks.
It is merely a matter of time before they get printed and charged. The main concern I have with this type of crook is that when they stand in the dock and plead guilty, most of them do once they see the evidence, the magistrate or judge will not be able to reflect upon the fear, hurt and mental problems this type of behaviour exacts upon the average member of public.
Too often this species get hit with a feather duster so never receive an incentive to lift their game from pondlife to something useful.

No I'm really against knocking down good family homes to build loads of flats & then house young families in them.
the only ones who benefit from the lost of houses are the developers.
Richmond rd use to have some really good houses they've gone & countless blocks of flats have replaced them.
the rd is clogged with parked cars & then they get planning permission to build another block in two houses back gardens how did they get planning permission to do that there?
sorry let's build houses not flats

That's odd. because I've lived there for about 5 years now, and not seen a single fight at all. I agree with LeeB1900 - Shirley is a LONG way from being the worst area. Millbrook, Thornhill, Northam, Portswood, and a load of other places have far more trouble and a much higher mugging & violence rate.
Not according to the crime stats they don't

For November 2012:

Portswood = 358 reported crimes

Thornhill = 237

Doesn't look good for Shirley does it!
Those figures do not show an area population ratio. Portswood & Thornhill have a mass population, Shirley is much smaller. PLUS...... it's their residents that come to Shirley side of town to commit crime so they don't do it in their own slums. And a second point... many residents in those two areas dont have the savey to do anything worth reporting! :-)

I speak from fact and not from a bias opinion. I dont live in Shirley or anywhere near , I write on a pro rata basis - i.e crime numbers v's resident numbers. I have never seen pot being smoked in Shirley, I have seen police vans and crime posters placed on a much higher basis in Swauthling that I have Shirley or Millbrook. If someone wants to place facts and figures on here - it really has to take into account much more than what the Police report says about numbers of crimes reported. You should also consider higher offender rates will mean less people report it in the same area. By this I mean if you have a group of thugs in one area - this same group are very unlikely to report a crime if they become the victim! Its fact Swaythling, Thornhill, Bassett, Woolston, St Marys and Itchen are far worse than Shirley Millbrook Lordshill side. And for the record I live in Swathling too, the SO18 area to narrow it down so I am not speaking from a bias opinion.

I wouldn't waste your finger muscles on this one Pikey_Biker, its clear the guy hasn't really got a clue from reading some of his posts. Possibly he has friends in the area and he's sticking up for them, but I know from absolute fact (ONS) that Shirley isn't regarded as a good area. I'm sure there are places just as bad if not worse, but if your talkng about a localised category of communities around Southampton as a whole, well I'm afraid the evidence does not look great Lee. Happy drivelling... ;)

This is a story regarding a shop worker in Shirley and that’s why it’s being picked on by many people on this forum, if there was a similar story regarding Thornhill, Bitterne and Woolston I am sure people will make similar comments about its residents. I think you are trying to turn this into a west side is better than east side and am afraid the facts do not support your views in fact quite the opposite[/p][/quote]I wouldn't waste your finger muscles on this one Pikey_Biker, its clear the guy hasn't really got a clue from reading some of his posts. Possibly he has friends in the area and he's sticking up for them, but I know from absolute fact (ONS) that Shirley isn't regarded as a good area.

Looking at the figures Weston did quite well in the crime figures for November 2012 ,195, buts as all crime areas are 1 mile around the centre it will include most of Woolston as well. Polygon, Northam and St Mary’s (998) have the worst crime rates for the same period but again most of their areas overlap
I know this dosen't take into account crime per head of population ratio but "leeB1900" tried to convince us Thornhill's population was larger than Shirley's but I proved him wrong on that point too.

I know you did, just wait for the next load of drivel he writes up on here, should make for some very interesting but useless and pointless reading.

Had the misfortune to live in Shirley once and lost count of the amount of times I saw shop-lifting chavs fighting with the security guard in Sainsbury's sending displays and shelves toppling.

Got so sick of it. Shirley - I hate the place.
That's odd. because I've lived there for about 5 years now, and not seen a single fight at all. I agree with LeeB1900 - Shirley is a LONG way from being the worst area. Millbrook, Thornhill, Northam, Portswood, and a load of other places have far more trouble and a much higher mugging & violence rate.
i have u know thornhill is very posh i have u know u just have to cary a base ball bat lol
