We would like to speak to him in connection with an assault and public order incident which took place in Tesco, High Street, Lymington at 8.50pm last Thursday (21 September).
Prior to the assault, a man is reported to have placed multiple bottles of high-value spirits into a shopping basket, before then attempting to leave the store without paying for the items.
When store staff intervened to prevent the man leaving with the goods, the man is then reported to have verbally abused two staff members and assaulted one of them by pushing him in the face. Thankfully, the victim was uninjured.
The man is described as;
