A Slow Ram-Raid?

Elderly man on mobility scooter sought after ‘ramming vehicle into supermarket window’

Sussex Police are hunting an elderly man on a mobility scooter who is thought to have rammed his machine into a supermarket window.
The renegade, believed to be in his 60s,  is suspected to have bumped the property after a dispute with staff at the Bexhill Co-op in Western Road on Wednesday.
Investigators believe the OAP crashed into the window on purpose because he was angry ‘over a customer service issue of some kind’.
The argument resulted in smashed glass and now police are seeking the man, who was wearing blue jeans, sunglasses and a dark top.
They have also released a CCTV image of him on his scooter.
Officers are urging anyone with information to come forward.
Co-operative Food said: ‘We can confirm that the front window of our store on Western Road in Bexhill was damaged on Wednesday 6 March, after a mobility scooter was driven into it.
‘CCTV has been passed to the police who are investigating.’
