  1. Cannot imagine an obese 40/50 something, Eastern European guy, wearing a leather jacket & brown/gold shoes is going to be too hard to find in Thanet.

  2. Why does it always take weeks for Kent police to ask the public to look at pictures? Are they relying on strike bound Royal Mail?

  3. i hope they catch him soon!, a nasty piece of work by the looks.assualting a helpless shop worker …bet he thinks his a right tough guy!

  4. Wasnt to hard to find him since he actually commented on the Kent Police post hahahaha

    What a utter cockwomble but yet another who thinks they can belittle those who work in retail!

    Maybe we should go on strike and see how much support we get from the public who complain about us closing for two days in the year to get away from the vile abuse because you leave it too late or too greedy to resist the temptation of chocolate!
