A pensioner was seriously as two men fled from a Lidl supermarket after attacking a teenager in the store.

The 81-year-old was knocked flying as the pair ran out of the supermarket in Upperton Road, Leicester at around 4pm on Saturday, September 26.

They had chased an 18-year-old man into the store, and attacked him – leaving him with minor factual injuries.

But as they made their escape they slammed into the elderly man, who fell and suffered “serious injuries” from which he is still recovering in hospital.

Today detectives released CCTV images of men they want to talk to about what happened.

Against government guidelines they hadn’t been wearing masks and so their faces are clearly visible in the footage.

Officers also want to hear from anyone in the supermarket who may have been filming the assault on their phones.

DC Ahmed Dada, who is the investigating officer, told Leicester Live : “We are looking into the full circumstances surrounding this incident and the events leading up to it so it’s very important that we identify these people pictured as they may have information which could assist our investigation.

He added: “If you are one of these people, or if you know who they are, we urge you to get in touch.

The two men pictured in the CCTV images were reported to have been with two girls – also pictured – at the time and they all entered the store at around the same time.

Anyone who was part of the group is being urged to contact DC 4213 Dada on 101, quoting crime number 20*506941.
