Swindon Police are appealing for information after a shoplifting and assault incident in Swindon.

At about 4.30pm on 10 March 2019, a man entered the Co-op, Clive Parade, Cricklade Road and placed several bottles of Ariel and Bold liquid detergent into a Morrisons bag. 

He then ran out of the store without making any attempt to pay. A member of staff attempted to stop the suspect and he assaulted her.  Fortunately the 34-year-old victim did not sustain any serious injury.

A CCTV image of a man we would like to speak to in connection with the incident is attached.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Angela Holden on 101 quoting reference 54190023928. Or call Crimestoppers  0800 555 111 anonymously.
