A MAN has come forward after a police plea following a shop worker in Christchurch being headbutted by a man who refused wear a facemask.

Investigating officers today (Tuesday) released a picture of the suspect following an incident on Friday 4th September at Pets Corner in Somerford Road.

At around 3pm a man shopping in the store became abusive when he was asked by a staff member to put on a face-covering.

It is reported he refused both to wear a mask and leave the shop when asked. Other workers became involved and the man eventually walked out to his car, with one employee remaining in the doorway to ensure he left.

However, instead of driving away the man came back and headbutted the person guarding the entrance, leaving the victim with a bruised eye.

Following the appeal, a man has come forward and is helping officers with their investigations, a spokesperson from Dorset Police said.

No arrests have been made.
