Police have released an image of a man they wish to speak to after a mother was spat at in the face. An argument broke out after a child accidentally walked into a pushchair at Asda supermarket in Strelley Road, Broxtowe.

The man with the pushchair became angry and started being abusive towards the child. The child’s father then intervened and an argument between the two adults ensued.

A short time later, the child’s mother confronted the man who had earlier shouted at her child after she spotted him outside the supermarket. Again, a verbal argument broke out and the man spat in her face. He then picked up a glass bottle and threw it at a wall. Police have condemned the incident and said that such behaviour is “vile.”

Sergeant Declan Bourne, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a very distressing incident and such vile behaviour will not be tolerated in our communities. “We are keen to speak to the man pictured in the CCTV image as we believe he may be able to assist with our enquiries. Anyone who recognises him is asked to call us on 101, quoting crime reference 22*4432.” The suspect fled the scene before police arrived.
