Elderly man fights for life after trolley incident at The Glades

10:22 31 December 2012

An elderly man is in a critical condition after he was allegedly rammed by a woman pushing a shopping trolley in The Glades during the run up to Christmas.

The 60-year-old suffered a broken hip and wrist after hitting the floor in Marks & Spencer and is now in an intensive care unit at a Kent hospital.

A 30-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm on Boxing Day and bailed to return on January 29.

Her arrest came after police were informed that the man’s condition had taken a turn for the worse.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “On Wednesday, 26 December, officers were informed that the man had suffered further health complications and that he was now in a critical condition.

“Officers subsequently arrested a 30-year-old woman on suspicion of GBH.”

Anybody with information that could assist officers should call Bromley CID on 020 8284 8811, 101 or talk anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
