Police are hunting a violent gang who left a shop worker with a broken nose. The 44-year-old woman was attacked at the Shirley branch of New Look in Southampton. She confronted the group she believed was trying to shoplift. They then started shouting at her before three of the gang attacked her.
The victim was hit and pushed several times and fell to the floor during the incident. A man, who was in the shop as a customer at the time, helped to push the group outside. The victim had to have medical treatment for her injuries, and as well as bruising suffered a fractured nose.
The entire attack was caught on CCTV. Those with information are asked to call PC Lou Wright at Shirley Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
