A supermarket security guard has been filmed ‘manhandling’ a young woman when she was allegedly caught shoplifting.
In an incident which has sparked debate on social media, the incident unfolded outside the Tesco superstore in Penzance, Cornwall on Thursday evening.
Local resident Nick Collins was shopping in the store when he captured the incident on his mobile phone.
In the video, a security guard employed by Tesco can be seen outside the shop entrance restraining a woman who allegedly stole from the store.
The guard then picks up the woman and drags her into the store against her will, to detain her until the police arrive at the scene.
