Man interviewed by police after video of confrontation at Peckham shop went viral
Sky News says A 45-year-old man has been interviewed by police under caution after a video of a confrontation at a shop in Peckham went viral and sparked protests.
Video footage of a woman hitting a man with a shopping basket as he appeared to choke her on Monday provoked anger among people in southeast London who objected to the way he had reacted.
Demonstrators gathered outside the shop on Tuesday afternoon after the video was shared on social media.
The row broke out after the woman was denied a refund and tried to take replacement items from the shop.
Officers visited the shop just after 1.15pm on Monday following reports a woman had attempted to steal items and was prevented from leaving by an employee.
