Eastbourne thug wearing ‘Keep Calm and Carry on’ t-shirt pushes disabled woman off her mobility scooter


A disabled woman was shoved off her mobility scooter and abused by a man with ‘hate’ tattooed on his knuckles.

The victim was near the bus area of Langney Shopping Centre at about 4.40pm on Friday August 22 when a man in his mid-twenties verbally abused her.

He then pushed the woman onto the ground, before shouting at her again and then walking away.

HHe was white and 5’ 10” with short spiky hair and had the word ‘hate’ tattooed across his knuckles.

He was wearing a black t-shirt featuring the phrase Keep Calm And Carry On, dark jeans and light coloured trainers.

PC Ben Stevens said, “The victim was abused after she tried to ask the offender to step out of her way so she could get past.

“She was subjected to a stream of nasty abuse and suffering bruising during her fall.

“She was helped back onto the scooter by members of the public and I would like to speak to them as well as to anyone else who saw what happened.

“If you saw or heard anything at all, please contact us.”
