Girl, 11, stops armed robber raiding a supermarket by throwing bread at him An 11-year-old girl managed to stop a robber armed with a knife by throwing bread at him. The masked robber was attempting to steal from a supermarket in Sussex, but left empty-handed after being hit by the loaf and some bottles of squash. Officers praised the girl’s bravery, but said the suspect is still at large. Sussex Police said a man walked into an Express Supermarket in Worthing just before 10pm on Monday and demanded that staff empty the till. But he got more than he bargained for when the girl and her father, who had been shopping at the time, spotted him and took action.

The offence against the child occurred in Castlewellan Forrest Park on 26 July 2018 while the girl was camping with her family.

Lindsay is now subject to a sexual offences prevention order for an indefinite time period, is on the sex offender’s register for 10 years and is banned from working with children and vulnerable. 

A forfeiture order was also issued for Lindsay’s vehicle and bike and the proceeds will go to charity.

“The judge praised the bravery of the girl, aged just eight, who got away from Lindsay, taking her little brother with her to safety,” PSNI Detective Constable Micky Meehan said.

“The girl’s family must also be commended as seeing something like this through the criminal justice process can never be easy. Throughout this difficult time they have displayed immense courage and fortitude throughout,” he said. 

Anyone who has experienced any form of sexual abuse is being asked to contact the PSNI on 101.

Hong Kong will soon ban the wearing of face masks at public protests, local media reported Thursday, in a clampdown on pro-democracy rallies that have rocked the strife-torn city. Seething public anger against Chinese rule of the semi-autonomous city has underscored increasingly violent confrontations between police officers and demonstrators, with no sign of an end to nearly four months of unrest.
