A security guard has been suspended after been caught on camera involved in a violent brawl with a pregnant shoplifter.
Shocking footage emerged of the clash outside the Bullring branch of New Look1 which shows the undercover store detective trying to detain a struggling Katie Adams. During the two minute video, passersby shout in horror at the security guard to let Adams go with one telling him that she s pregnant.
A PCSO soon arrives to try and calm the situation with all parties eventually being moved into the store. Adams, of Wordsworth Road, Small Heath, received a six-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, after pleading guilty to the two offences when she appeared at Birmingham Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
Now New Look has told the Mail that they have suspended the store detective pending a full investigation.
A New Look spokesperson said: We are deeply shocked by the contents of this video.
The behaviour of the store detective involved is unacceptable and he has been suspended while an investigation is carried out by our security supplier, Lodge Security.
We expect anyone who works for us either as an employee or through a supplier to act professionally and treat people with respect at all times. The video was filmed by an onlooker, who was visiting the city with a friend and their children . She told the Birmingham Mail: It was terrible.

The Champions Trophy will continue under significantly enhanced security following the terror attack which killed at least seven people and injured many more in central London. The International Cricket Council released a statement on Sunday morning in which it confirmed security is very much front and centre of our preparations as the global tournament continues over the next two weeks. The measures which were put in place after last week s attack in Manchester therefore remain in place, including enhanced security at Sunday s high-profile match between India and Pakistan at Edgbaston.
A minute s silence took place before that fixture, in memory of those who lost their lives or were injured on Saturday night, and shortly afterwards the ICC began its statement by remembering the victims.
Our thoughts are with everyone affected by what has happened in London overnight, it read.
The ICC and ECB England and Wales Cricket Board continue to place safety and security at the ICC Champions Trophy and ICC Women s World Cup this summer as the highest priority. Swift measures were immediately taken to ensure the safety of competing teams around the country. The statement added: Following last night s incident all team hotels went into lockdown and teams, match officials and staff were all quickly accounted for.
The enhanced security around venues implemented following the Manchester attack remains in place, and this includes significantly enhanced police and security presence for today s match.
The next teams in action will be Australia and Bangladesh at The Oval on Monday, and they were both set to practise on Sunday at the venue which is in close proximity to the attacks at London Bridge and Borough Market. The ICC added: We operate on advice from our tournament security directorate in conjunction with the ECB and relevant police and security authorities to ensure that we can deliver a safe and secure event.
We will continue to work with authorities over the coming hours and days and review our security in line with the threat levels.
The security situation has been very much front and centre of our preparations, and we constantly review our procedures to guarantee they are as effective as possible to keep everyone safe.
We do not disclose our security details as a matter of policy. Hosts England were travelling to Cardiff on Sunday morning, and will train there later in preparation for their second match of the tournament against New Zealand on Tuesday.
New Zealand are also on their way to Wales, and a team spokesman said: We have taken advice from the ICC and the assistance they have put in place from a security point of view and we will continue to do that. Australia have described themselves as comfortable with the security provided although they will continue to monitor the situation . Steve Smith s team travelled from Birmingham to London after their opening match finished in a rainy no-result against New Zealand two days ago.
A Cricket Australia spokesman said: As with the rest of the world, the Australian team is shocked and saddened at the events that have occurred in London overnight and our thoughts are with those directly involved and their loved ones.
The team, support staff and travelling contingent have been accounted for .
Our security team is working closely with the ICC and LOC to ensure the safety and security of our players and support staff is paramount.
At this stage we are comfortable with the level of security being provided to us and will continue to monitor the situation.
