Over Easter weekend, shocking video footage emerged of two young boys threatening Asda employees at a store in Gosport, Hampshire as staff guarded the entrance to ensure social distancing policies were followed by shoppers.
In the footage one of the lads can be heard shouting: “I’ll jump on his head fam – do you understand?”.
Whilst the other boy who made off on a bike after approaching a female member of staff yelled: “I’m gonna come Asda later”, whilst the other added that he had “a f***ing axe” saying he’d cut them up.
As they make a break for it, the female employee can be heard calling: “How old are you three?”, evidently shocked at their language and behaviour.
In response one boy says: “How old are you, you look about 80-years old”.
Another can still be heard shouting: “I’m going to f***ing come back here and slice you up you little c***”.
A woman later shared the video footage on Twitter captioning it: “My stepdad got a shot of Gosport finest outside Asda this afternoon”.
Adding: “Update: anyone who wants to know one of them was dragged back by his dad to apologise. The video is on Gosport aware Facebook page if you want to watch it. You can call my stepdad the Gandhi of Gosport”.
Outraged, one of the boy’s father forced his ‘vile-mouthed little b****d’ to go back and apologise to the staff at Asda sharing a photo and a video of his son on Facebook saying he had ‘never been more disgusted and mortified’ by his child.
In a Twitter post the boy’s father wrote: “For everyone who has seen a video of this boy threatening members of staff at Asda yesterday. As a dad I have never been more disgusted and mortified with my son in my life”.
“He has not been brought up to behave in this manner and I do not condone his behaviour at all”.
“Just to let you all know, the police have been notified and evidence has been sent, it is now over to them to decide what they wish to do”.
“Also the police were notified at the first point of call when he was not back from his daily exercise, both myself and my wife take the covid-19 pandemic very seriously”.
“I just want to point out for those who blame the parents, this Not and I repeat NOT how we have brought him up. He will [be] [thoroughly] punish[ed] and this WILL not happen again”.
“I am not naming and shaming the other person in the video yesterday as he is not my responsibility and my son should not have been out in public”.
“This video is a public apology to all the members of staff and public at Asda yesterday”.
A spokesman for Hampshire Police said: “We received a report just after 4.30pm on 13 April regarding an assault at the Asda store on Dock Road, Gosport”.
“Officers are aware of the video circulating and this incident is being investigated. We ask that anyone with information call 101, quoting 44200131031”.
