Appeal after assault outside city centre shop

An assault in Bristol city centre is under investigation.

We received a report of a disturbance at a shop in St Augustine’s Parade at just after 4.20pm on Monday 1 November.

A male customer was refusing to leave the premises as requested by staff.

On arrival, officers were told the customer once outside had slapped the arm of one of the staff. It caused the victim to drop his phone causing it to break.

Officers searched the surrounding area to see if they could find anyone matching the suspect’s description, but they were unable to.
