West Mercia Police are releasing an image of a man officers would like to speak to in connection with an assault in Worcester.

At around 2pm on Sunday 24 January a security guard, who was working in a store on Foregate Street, approached a man who was shopping and asked him to wear a face mask. The man then became verbally abusive and was escorted from the store. Once outside, the man spat in the security guard’s face.

Investigating officers would like to speak to the man pictured, as it’s believed he may have information which could assist with enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to report it online here or call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting crime reference number 22/5904/21

Alternatively, information can be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
