Poole pair arrested after store detective run over
TWO people from Poole have been arrested after a supermarket store detective was run over as he tried to stop a suspected shoplifter.
The man tried to stop a woman he suspected of stealing from a Tesco store on Fishbourne Road, Chichester, last Thursday - September 19 - at around 10.45am, when she got into a blue Volkswagen Passat, that had a male in the driving seat.
He stood in front of the car, which was then driven at the store detective, carrying him on the bonnet for around 20m (65ft) before he fell off.
A 47-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman, both from Poole, were questioned by police after being stopped in Hampshire.
Officers questioned the man on suspicion of dangerous driving and shoplifting, and the woman was questioned on suspicion of shoplifting.
They have both been released on bail until October 5 pending further inquiries.
PC John Blight of Sussex Police said: “The store detective was very lucky not to have suffered a serious injury, but has been left badly shaken by the incident.”
Sussex Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information.
