Thankfully both women are understood to be okay following the attack. One came in the following day to discuss what had happened, and the daughter-in-law of the second came in to reassure the shopkeeper Ian Gooch

‘The next day one of the women came into my shop and said she was fine. She told me she had gone home and cleaned up a bloody knee, and that she had bashed her head which damaged her earring – she wasn’t happy about that.’

Then later on the daughter-in-law of the second woman also came into his shop and told him she was fine too, having been taken to hospital by her family as a precaution.

But as the pair were speaking, a second person came into the shop and said the culprit was sitting on the bus just outside the door.

 Mr Gooch said: ‘People on social media have also come forward to name the man who did it and have said he’s not the nicest man – and some have said they’ve seen him walking without the wheelchair’

Mr Gooch rushed out to confront him and took pictures of the man’s face to hand over to police.

‘People on social media have also come forward to name the man who did it and have said he’s not the nicest man – and some have said they’ve seen him walking without the wheelchair.’ 

A police spokesman said: ‘On Thursday, 14 June at 13:35 hours a member of the public contacted police stating that he had seen a man on a mobility scooter collide with two elderly women in Upper Wickham Lane and make off. 

‘Police were informed that the women were not injured and that the incident had occurred at 12:00 hours. The caller stated he had footage of the incident and he was advised to take it to a police station.’
