If you have any information call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting log number 183 of December 13.”

Shocking moment Tesco security guard PICKS UP screaming ‘shoplifter’ and drags her into store

This is the shocking moment a Tesco security guard PICKED UP an alleged shoplifter – and dragged her kicking and screaming back into the store. The video was shot outside a branch of Britain’s biggest grocer in Cornwall. The footage, shot on Thursday, has since gone viral on social media and made headlines nationally.

The Mirror1 reports local Nick Collins was shopping in the Tesco Superstore when he captured the incident on his mobile phone.

A security guard employed by Tesco can be seen outside the shop entrance in the footage.

He is restraining a woman who allegedly stole from the store. The guard then picks up the woman and drags her into the store against her will, to detain her until the police arrive at the scene.

Police confirmed officers attended the store after a woman in her late 20s was detained, Cornwall Live2 reports. She was then arrested for shoplifting and assault.

A police spokesperson confirmed two bottles Mo t & Chandon champagne were returned to the store as part of the incident.

Mr Collins uploaded the video to Facebook later that evening in a public post, suggesting that a large grown man shouldn t have been so physical with the woman. And debate subsequently broke out on the social media site. Mr Collins said: It seemed excessive from a completely neutral point of view, and also the fact that there were a lot of children all around, who had finished school and were going into Tesco.

I m getting a lot of stick from people, most of whom seem to be taking the point of view that this guy deserves a medal, that he s a hero, and that this woman is subhuman.

But I was the one who was there, and it was quite traumatic.

I shared the video publicly for no other reason than to make sure that this voiceless girl, who obviously has troubles in her life, that there was somebody who is standing up for her.

People like her are very much the voiceless people, who have no power or help.

Commenting on Facebook, Julie Hall Dawson also took Mr Collins’ side . She s not committing a violent offence, they should have called police not manhandled her like that . Jobsworth bullies. Rachel Tregurtha Mclean added: Are they even allowed to get that physical ? I wouldn’t have thought so, and even if she had stolen something I’m more bothered by how the situation was handled . If that was a child of mine I would go bonkers about it.

Keith Scully said: That’s assault, in every manner.. . Stick it on Tesco page, let me know how it goes . Wanna be cops… But many were in support of the security guard, stating that he was simply doing his job.

Vaughan Rouffignac was particularly vocal . He s doing his f******* job man, Mr Rouffignac said. “He’s allowed to use force if she doesn’t do as asked . I know him and he knows the rules.”

Georgie Grace said the individual shouldn t receive special treatment just because she is a female. She said: I might stroll out with my weekly shop tomorrow, quick wrestle with security but know it will be fine because some do-gooder will film it because I’m a woman and security is male and they’ll be in the wrong . Come off it.

Bryony Anne added: He has every right to bring her back into the shop so the police can be called . If I had children and they behaved this way I d call the cops myself! A spokesperson for Tesco said the company is “aware” of the incident, adding: We are assisting police with this matter.
