He suffered head and hand injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment.

It is understood Aldi does not have CCTV cameras covering the car park.

The daughter of the injured man posted on Facebook, saying: "Whoever you are you mongrel, you need to feel ashamed of yourself and be sure the police are looking for you."
