Shoppers were left horrified by a group of teens seemingly attacked staff at a Ruislip supermarket.
A group of youths terrorised the Aldi store in Victoria Retail Park at around 6pm on Monday, September 30, trying to smash their way through the entrance after the workers attempted to lock them out.
The group, which is believed to have contained a mix of boys and girls, used a fire extinguisher to shatter the entrance’s glass and it’s believed some of them were armed with poles and knuckledusters.
Footage filmed by Ross Scott showed Aldi staff having to take their belts off and fight off the group with them.
