A homeless man has died after being tackled to the ground by a security guard in a Trowbridge car park. The security guard has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after the un-named shoplifter in his 30s is believed to have suffered fatal wounds when the bottle he was carrying smashed. The 20-year-old doorman was understood to have been working in a shopping complex when he suspected a man, 30, of stealing.
He pursued him across The Shires car park near Asda in Trowbridge and “tackled” the would-be thief – causing glass bottles he was concealing to smash.
Police said the shards caused “significant injury” to the man and he died. South West Ambulance Service treated the man, who was in cardiac arrest, but he died at the scene.
The security guard from Trowbridge was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and on Friday remained in police custody pending further enquiries. Speaking at the scene on Friday, Detective Chief Inspector Jeremy Carter said the suspected shoplifter was a homeless man, understood to be from Cornwall.
He said: “The security guard was from a shop in the area, that is all we can say at this time. “The man who died is believed to have connections with Wiltshire but is possibly 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. “We are examining the CCTV footage from the area and appealing for witnesses.
“It was a very busy time with people leaving school and shopping. “Anyone who may have information are asked to call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers.”
The arrested 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.
Eyewitness Harriet Greenshields, 27, a homeless onlooker, said: “As I was coming out of The Shires I could see this boy and he was walking pretty fast and then the security tried to detain him. “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.
“Once he was on the floor I didn’t see because there were so many people stood round.
“All of a sudden there were loads of people stood round . Then there was a siren. “Police must have been notified already because they were there really quickly.
“In the end there was a total of about three cars . I saw two ambulances. “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 have since hit out at the arrest of the security guard who was “just doing his job”. 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 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.” And Jason Bartlett commented: “Like the security guard wanted that to happen. “While it’s sad the man died you have to say if he didn’t have stolen glass bottles down his trousers you wouldn’t need to run and then smash them.”
Sam Morris wrote: “It’s very simple – the guy shouldn’t have been stealing . Did he deserve death – no.
“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.
