The victim of a shocking unprovoked assault outside a Tamworth shopping centre has pleaded for his attacker to get his comeuppance.

Clive Jackson, known as Derek, was hurt after being pushed to the floor outside the Ankerside shopping centre on January 30.

Staffordshire Police released images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the attack and Derek spoke exclusively to the Herald pleading for someone to come forward.

But two months have passed and his attacker is still at large.

Speaking to the Tamworth Herald again this week as Staffordshire Police issued a re-appeal for information, Derek said: “I have heard nothing yet.

“It gives me a really bad feeling for someone to do that to me and it is like they have got away with it. I am just waiting now for something to happen.

“My back is still not right. I went to Robert Peel on Tuesday and I will need to go to Derby for a scan.

“If there is anyone out there that knows anything then please contact the police. I really want something to happen.”

Derek, 84, a former coal miner who also worked in concentric pumps, had left his home in Fazeley at 9.30am, parked up on Spinning School Lane and got to the centre at around 9.50am on the morning of the attack.

“He gave me a good push and I cannot remember anything else about it. He shoved me with his two hands into my chest then he must have ran off,” Derek recalled.

A spokesman for Staffordshire Police said: “We’re still appealing for any information leading to the identification of this man (pictured).

“Our officers would like to speak to him in connection to an assault on an 84-year-old man who was shoved out of the way at the main entrance to the Ankerside Shopping Centre in Tamworth.

“The incident occurred at around 9.50am on Tuesday, January 30 and we are appealing for anyone with any information to contact us.

“If you can help us to identify this man please call 101 quoting incident number 226 of January 30.”
