I work in a shopping Centre as security, about 6 weeks ago myself and a colleague removed a known shoplifter (A "Prolific offender"as described in the business crime news letter from Police) from a store and told him to leave the Mall, and wait at the entrance for the person he was with. Going back a few minutes later the guy was still in the mall so was approached by myself and again told to leave. He refused and started to be abusive, making the usual threats that his type make "I'll be waiting for you at closing time", "You're gonna get fucking stabbed in the dark one night", "You want to get me out? try it you've no idea whats in my pockets""I'll see you bleed cunt" and the all time classic "I know where you live".When he was initially refusing to leave a call was given via the town link Radio to Police, but we recieved no answer though we had heard Police on minutes earlier. All the time he was giving this crap out I had the button pressed on my Radio. So My colleague listening to this came up behind the guy whos attention was firmly fixed on me and pulled the guys hands out his pockets before he could react in case he did have something in his pocket. And gripping him by his Elbows marched him to the door. Once outside the guy immediatley came to come back in and my colleague blocked him and pushed him with open palms away from the door. The guy was screaming with rage and just kept charging at us, so he was pushed back again each time with open palms across the carpark. After he fell over (Basically he sat down) after being given a shove on charging at my colleague again, we helped him up and he stormed off toward the side entrance of the mall. We cut back through the centre and headed him off, informing him again that he was not to enter. Leaving him there as it was what was originally asked of him, we returned to the office and monitored the doorway where he was waiting via cctv. After 10 minutes his friend left the mall and they walked off, Then today we get a Bobby requesting the cctv and informing us that we are to come into the station on Wednesday morning to be intreveiwed under Caution about this incident. At all times my colleague only used open Palmed pushes as taught on the conflict Management course we have done and the male can be seen to keep coming at him and myself. The only Physical contact I had with the male was when he stumbled and I helped him up on camera. The Guy has apparently alledged asssault claiming to have been punched, we have had similar alledgations in the past, and the Police usually come in, veiw footage and ask our side, get us to sign their pocketbook and thats the last we hear of it. So being asked to come in for an interveiw under caution has got us worried, as we are always very careful as any trouble could lose us our Licenses. So After reading this, Do I need a Solictor? Thanks for advice in advance.
