Man, 20, arrested for wiping his spit on goods at Lidl
A man has been arrested by police after he was allegedly seen licking his fingers and touching goods at a Lidl in Dorset.
The man, 20, wore a face mask and gloves to protect him as he entered the supermarket but removed them before ‘purposefully’ wiping his spit on products.
Witnesses described seeing him lowering the mask, licking his fingers and rubbing them onto items.
The man entered the Lidl store on St Andrews Road in Bridport at about 2pm on Friday, Dorset Police said.
The force said following inquiries, the individual was arrested and charged with an offence of contaminating or interfering with goods with intent under Section 38 of the Public Order Act 1986.
He is due to appear before Weymouth Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
Dorset Police said the suspect did not have a confirmed case of Covid-19 and was not displaying any symptoms.
