Police in England have said they want to trace an ‘Irish’ woman after a supermarket worker was slapped in the face with a fish.
Lancashire police issued an image of the girl and a male who is understood to have filmed the incident at an Asda store in Accrington on a mobile phone.
The girl, who was described by the 52 year-old victim as Irish, approached the fish counter and asked about the different products on sale.
Then, without warning, she picked up a large bream from the fish stall and slapped the worker across the face before running out of the store.
The woman is described as being Irish - it is not known whether from Northern Ireland or the Republic - and aged between 15 and 18 with blonde, shoulder-length untidy hair. She was wearing dark jeans and a blue coat with white cuffs, white down the front and a red collar with ‘I love PB’ on the left breast pocket.
The man is described as being around the same age, 5ft 8ins tall, wearing a dark coat and dark grey trousers and boots.
PC Graham Hartley said: “This behaviour is completely unacceptable and I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this incident or recognises either the man or the woman pictured in the CCTV images to come forward and contact me, PC 1183 Hartley on 101.”
