Southampton Police Seek Man Who Assaulted Woman In Wheelchair

March 10, 2015

Please share widely.

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a woman in a wheelchair was assaulted in Southampton.

The 48-year-old victim was near McDonalds and Tesco Express in Shirley High Street when she was approached by a man who made a gun gesture with his fingers and pointed at her.

He then pushed his fingers against her head, still in the form of a gun, but walked off towards Foyes Corner after she shouted at him, drawing the attention of passers-by.

The woman was left “extremely distressed and shaken” by the incident but was unharmed.

Officers are looking for a white man, around 5ft 10ins tall, aged around 30, who wore dark blue jeans, a khaki green bomber jacket and a khaki green beanie hat.

He was also described as very skinny and clean shaven.

PC Phil Deeprose said: “The victim has been left extremely upset and distressed by what has happened to her. She is disabled and uses a wheelchair, and she believes that the man targeted her because of her disability.

“She was assisted by passers-by after the incident, including a group of young girls who were in McDonalds.”

Anyone with information should call PC Deeprose at Southampton Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
