Police investigate after man spits at shop worker

A MAN spat at a member of staff at a shop in Glastonbury after being asked to wear a mask.

The incident happened between 9.30am and 10am on Wednesday, December 15 at a store on the High Street.

Now police are asking for help in identifying the man and have issued a CCTV image.

A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset police said: “A man entered the shop and became verbally abusive when asked to wear a mask. Upon then being asked to leave, he spat directly at the member of staff.

“This action led to the store being closed for a deep clean and left the staff member shaken and distressed.

The man in the image was in the area at the time. He’s described as white, in his 40s or 50s, wearing a jacket, grey baseball cap and blue trousers or jeans.

We’d ask him – or anyone who can help us trace him – to contact us.
