Dulcote man attacked a security guard and threw fireworks at him

Comments (0) 1

A Dulcote2 man who threw several fireworks, hitting a quarry security guard with one, and then attacked his van before stabbing him on the finger with a metal centre punch has been given a conditional discharge by magistrates. Christopher Randle had been drinking when he launched the attack claiming he was fed up with workers from the quarry constantly tooting their horns as they drove past his caravan. The victim was shocked when he heard the first firework going over the top of his van, and when he got out to see what was happening a second one was set off and hit him on the right side of his body.

When the defendant later returned holding a metal object he hit out with it, connecting with the security guard’s hand causing an injury to his finger.

And when he appeared before Somerset3 Magistrates he said he had got a bit too drunk and was just “having a bit of fun”.

Randle, 50, of Bishops Park Way, pleaded guilty to assaulting Gavin Molloy by beating him and causing damage to his Iphone at Dulcote on March 13 when he appeared before the court5 at Yeovil6. Emma Lenanton, prosecuting, said that Mr Molloy was working as a security guard at a quarry near Wells when he was approached by Randle at the main gate and a verbal disagreement took place between them. “A short time later the victim was sat in his van when he saw a firework go over the top of his vehicle so he got out and saw Randle stood in the direction it had come from,” she said.

“A second firework was set off which hit Mr Molloy on the right hand side of his body but no injury was caused, and it then hit the back of his van so he got back inside and locked the door. “Randle walked towards the door and tried to open it and then started kicking and banging the window before walking away.” The defendant then returned and went back to the driver’s door and the victim could see he had a metal object in his hand and he started to hit the window with it.

Mr Molloy called his manager who rang the police and he then got out of the van and could see Randle still had the object.

He had his Iphone in his hand and the defendant then hit out with the centre punch, connecting with the victim’s hand and finger and causing his phone to be knocked onto the ground cracking the screen. The victim’s manager arrived at the scene and assisted him in restraining Randle, removing the metal object, and the police then arrived and arrested him. During interview the defendant said he had taken co-codamol and drunk around eight pints of cider and was heavily under the influence of alcohol.

“He said it did it just for fun and told the police he was simply trying to wind the security guard up,” added Miss Lenanton. In a statement made by Mr Molloy he said that his finger was still sore a few days after the incident and he had to pay 150 for a new screen for his Iphone. Randle told the court that he had got a bit drunk and the offence was just “stupidity”.

He said: “The security guards had been tooting their horns at me on a previous occasion and I was just too drunk and got stupid and wound him up to have a bit of fun, however I understand it’s serious,” he said.

“I want to apologise as I was being very silly and it is all a bit vague as I have a bit of an alcohol problem. “I live in a caravan round the corner from the quarry and three cars have been tooting their horns at me and were winding me up, so I wound them up after finding a few fireworks I had left over from Christmas.” The magistrates imposed a six month conditional discharge on Randle and ordered him to pay 150 compensation to Mr Molloy for the damage to his phone along with 85 costs and an 85 victim surcharge.

No action against Trowbridge security guard after homeless shoplifter dies

A security guard who was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after a suspected shoplifter he apprehended died will face no further action, police said. Kieren Church, 30, suffered a “significant injury” when glass bottles he was concealing smashed as he was being tackled by the 20-year-old security guard. Mr Church, of no fixed address, died at the scene following the incident in The Shires car park in Trowbridge on February 9.1

A Wiltshire Police spokeswoman said: “A man arrested on suspicion of manslaughter following the death of a man in The Shires car park has been released with no further police action.

“An investigation is being conducted for a report to be passed to the HM Coroner for Wiltshire.” No Action Against Trowbridge Security Guard After Homeless Shoplifter Dies Mr Church’s family paid tribute, telling the Bath Chronicle: “Kieren was a much loved son, brother, grandson and friend to many .

He will be sadly missed.” South West Ambulance Service treated Mr Church, who was in cardiac arrest, but he died at the scene. Speaking at the scene on Friday, February 10, Detective Chief Inspector Jeremy Carter said the suspected shoplifter was a homeless man, understood to be from Cornwall.

“He was homeless and it is believed he lived in the Trowbridge area. “Just after 3pm yesterday the police were called to the shopping centre to reports of an altercation between a security guard and a member of the public . As a result a man has died.

“There was a significant attempt from the emergency services to save the man’s life . A post mortem is due to be carried out to find the cause of death. “It was a very busy time with people leaving school and shopping.”

No Action Against Trowbridge Security Guard After Homeless Shoplifter Dies The security guard reportedly pursued the shoplifter for 300m after he allegedly stole a bottle of vodka from Sainsbury’s. The supermarket confirmed the arrested 20-year-old was working at the store via external contractor Mitie.

Onlookers said the suspected thief was seen “walking pretty fast” with something up his top when there was a “scuffle” involving the security worker.

“There was a little bit of commotion . A security guard was chasing a man – I’d say in his late 20s – and the guy had something in his top as he was running so I assumed he was a shoplifter. “I don’t think the security guard meant to do it because at first he was just trying to detain him.

“But then there was a scuffle and the boy must have tripped on his leg or something as the security guard went to detain him and he just fell over.

“I’ve got some homeless friends and a little bit later on they said two helicopters turned up . I was quite far away and because there were other people crowding around I didn’t get to see who it was. “There are only one or two homeless guys I know that shoplift, and one of them has not been seen today (Friday) yet.”

Locals hit out at the arrest of the security guard who was “just doing his job”. No Action Against Trowbridge Security Guard After Homeless Shoplifter Dies Writing on Facebook, Natasha Henderson said: “This is ridiculous !

The security guard has been arrested for doing him (sic) job!” Ben Clinch added: “Security guard should not be arrested for doing his job . Police should be careful what message they give out to other criminals.

“The bloke didn’t deserve to die of course not, but security guards are pointless if they are not empowered to protect property.” Sharon Reeves added: “That is so sad . The poor bloke was only doing his job.”

Would he still be alive if he hadn’t been a thief – yes! ! Security guard doesn’t deserve any police action.” It has also emerged a TV film crew recorded the aftermath of the tragedy in Trowbridge.

A crew from Channel 4’s 999: What’s Your Emergency ? were shadowing paramedics in Wiltshire when they were called to the shopping centre car park.
