First published in News News Shopper: Photograph of the Author by , Chief reporter

A 60-YEAR-OLD man remains critically ill in hospital two weeks after he was attacked in a trolley rage incident in The Glades shopping centre in Bromley.

It is believed the man was struck with a trolley being pushed by a woman at Marks & Spencer while he was doing his shopping in the food department.

He fell to the ground and sustained injuries including a broken hip and wrist, and was taken to a Kent hospital for treatment.

Four days after the incident, which happened at around 1pm on December 22, officers were informed the man had suffered further health complications and was critically ill.

A Met Police spokesman says his condition remains critical but stable.

On Boxing Day officers arrested a 30-year-old woman on suspicion of GBH.

She has been bailed to return to a south London police station on January 29, pending further investigation.

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call Bromley police CID on 020 8284 8811, 101 or talk anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

I hope this poor gentleman will make a good recovery.
May I remind the punkhead that put him in danger that 60 is not old and not even retirement age for a man. Many people that age are fit and agile in body and mind.
You obviously have issues in your life. Think before you act in future, something you need to address.

I also hope the poor chap recovers soon...

I really don't think that there is any good reason for people to behave this way...

...but I will say that Marks & Spencer, is particularly poor at staffing cash tills, and the queues are unbelievable...

...Add to that, the stupidity of the Christmas rush, and you have a recipe for calamities like this...

It only takes a second to just give that trolly a little shove...

...And possibly a lifetime to regret that.

I've been told via the grapevine.... that this 'lady' shoved the man several times with the trolley and continued after he'd fallen down. IF this is true she should be sectioned. However mad with someone you are there is NO excuse for this behaviour.

This is so sad . I wish for a complete recovery for this man. I agree that the lady concerned need to have her anger issues looked at and tamed.
