Tesco / tesco pinner green middlesex london

1 England, Middlesex, United Kingdom Review updated:

How safe are we really? Common Assault without CCTV evidence cannot constitute a crime - don't be so ridiculous Tescos!

Officers were called by way of 999 call when a father of two from Pinner was assaulted by a Security Guard called PATRICK employed by Tesco's Store in Pinner green the 29th April 2013 at around 5.30pm.
The victim alleges that the Security Guard used excessive force three times, including a punch to his back, in order to stop him from seeing the Store Manager.
This victim claims "this happened because the Security Guard was trying to stop me from speaking to the Store Manager". The victim was simply trying to exercise his rights by lodging a formal complaint to question why he and his family continued to be constantly monitored around the store upon each visit. A.K.A "harassment".
On a previous visit the Security Guard was made to apologise to the victim for using abusive language at him - namely "F-off"!
On the day of the attack, as well as following the victim around the store (as if he was a criminal), the victim states the that Security Guard, working outside his job description, had asked a cashier to open the till to verify the Tesco Card coupon redeemed against the purchase of some baby nappies for the victim's new born.
When the victim told the Security Guard that he wished to speak to the Store Manager to lodge a complaint as he felt he was being singled out, he said the Security Guard replied "Don't you dare make another complaint about me and if you do complain, just watch what i do". When the victim asked "What do you mean?" The Security Guard threatened "Well you've got family and children."
The ordeal ended when the victim, a small five foot and five inches, was pushed against the exit glass door by the tall black Security Guard. Consequently, the victim called the Ambulance Services and he was later treated at Harrow's A&E who confirmed that he sustained bruising and tenderness.
The Officer who attended the scene of the crime used his bias discretion, sided with the blonde Store Manager, Claire Kingston, and failed accept a crime had taken place in the absence of CCTV footage.
The victim's family have made a Subject Access Request to see what evidence Tesco Stores rely on to back up their version that the Security Guard had at no point attacked the victim and was in full sight of the CCTV footage throughout the duration of the Victim's entire time at the store. The CCTV timeline will hold the answers.
The IPCC have also received a complaint with regard to the Officer failing to lodge the incident on paper as a crime or allocate a crime reference number. As a direct result, the Security Guard, continues work at Tesco Store without being reprimanded by his management and the Police cannot do anything in the absence of CCTV footage which according to the Store Manger "did not capture anything".
Despite promises made by Tesco Stores Head Office for the Store Manager to make contact with the victim and his representative at an agreed date and time, the so called "Manager" has been able to manage this and failed to give the victim or his family priority. Further, no assurance has been provided to the victim or his family that their health and safety will be protected against the disgruntled and violent thug of a Security Guard when shopping at the store with their small children".

"I am petrified to go shopping there, if he can carry out such an unprovoked attack in a 'CCTV blind spot area' away from the eyes of the CCTV, then he can do this again and again. We all have small children and we fear for their safety. I believe when people are allowed to get away with wrongful acts, they will repeat again and again as they think they are invincible...whose to know when he can strike next" said the sister of the victim.

    Usually happens when products or lines do not sell as well as hoped or projected and cause a high degree of waste. Lines either get discontinued or introduced in different stores.

    I have been subjected to constant Tesco's condom breakages and slippage. I have been driven to the point of near insanity and my wife is currently being treated for cardiac arrest. Stay far away

    Foul, Tesco's stores are the most parasitic dehumanising carbuncle on the face of humanity. Read my review on this site about Tesco Kennington and Margarat the screeching Harridan on Till 2

    This security guard thinks he is above the law and I appeal to all tesco senior managers to sack him now as I live in pinner and also shop at the store. I have been abused and swore at myself. My son was also pushed recently just because he took a few extra free newspapers for the old people's home.

    Claire Kingston will do anything to support this security guard, trust me as I a 60 year old man was warned and threatened by her also just for taking a few extra tesco carrier bags
