Kidderminster Shuttle: Injured security guard found unconscious in car park Injured security guard found unconscious in car park

A SECURITY guard who suffered head injuries in an incident in Kidderminster was found unconscious in a car park.

The incident happened near Marks and Spencer in Weavers Wharf at about 11am today.

An ambulance, a local community first responder, a responder paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The man, a security guard believed to be in his 50s, was found unconscious, fitting and had sustained an injury to his head.

“Ambulance staff immediately worked to assess and stabilise the man’s condition, administering drugs to help control his recurring fits before being immobilised onto a spinal board.

"An ambulance quickly transferred the man to the awaiting helicopter, which had landed in a nearby field, before being airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, a major trauma centre.

“The MERIT doctor continued emergency treatment and closely monitored the man en route. Medics at the hospital were pre alerted to the man’s arrival and serious condition.”

A man was arrested nearby shortly after the incident and police are appealing for witnesses.

Superintendent Kevin Purcell of West Mercia Police said: “This inquiry is at a very early stage and we are trying to ascertain what happened.

“The incident took place in a busy shopping environment and we are aware there were a number of people in the vicinity, some of whom may not have realised the significance of what they saw.

“We are appealing for any witnesses who saw anything in the store or car park who haven’t already spoken to police to contact Kidderminster CID on the non-emergency number 101 quoting incident 18-s-270214.”

I hope whoever did this gets locked up. It makes my blood boil how some low life could do this.
I wish the victim a speedy recovery.

I believe it's the same person I chased down Comberton Hill on Monday after he stole goods from our shop.
He was well and truly caught on our CCTV committing the theft.
Hope he gets his just deserve.
