Supermarket staff detained a shoplifter at Tesco Harford Bridges the shoplifter who had an offensive weapon became violent and assaulted the member of staff, an off duty police officer intervened and detained the suspect during so he himself was assaulted.

The 36-year-old from Norwich was arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and affray and remains in custody at Wymondham.

Two further people, a man aged 62 and a woman aged 45, both from Norwich, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of assault and dangerous driving, and possession of an offensive weapon and theft, respectively and also remain in custody at Wymondham.

Investigating officer, PC Steve Harrowing, said: “The incident was witnessed by several onlookers and while a number of people were spoken to at the scene yesterday, I would encourage anyone who saw what happened and hasn’t already spoken to police to get in touch.

“We’re particularly keen to speak to trace a man who can be seen on CCTV to recover a weapon during the incident before handing it to a member of staff. The footage also shows another man filming the incident on his mobile phone and we would be keen to speak with this person.”

Anyone with information or can help police with their enquiries should contact PC Harrowing at Wymondham Police Investigation Centre on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
