An eyewitness told The News a man was stopped by staff inside the store before officers arrived and arrested him outside.

Today a Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said a 28-year–old man from Croydon had been released from custody but remains under investigation.

A woman was also arrested at the time but was de-arrested a short time later as officers decided she was not connected to the incident.
