Businessman who grabbed a thug for smashing a window is charged with assault

I almost think this sort of thing should be filed under a catagory that reads, Why Bother Anymore?

A businessman was stunned when he detained a yob for smashing a shop window only to be charged by police with assault.

Steve Kink apprehended a thug after catching him breaking into a mobile phone shop late at night.

Although the 47-year-old was punched in the face, he managed to pin the offender to the floor.

Passers-by called the police while he stood over him until officers arrested the 25-year-old man.

Mr Kink, who owns a tattoo parlour, was stunned when he found out the next day the suspect had been let off with a caution for criminal damage.

But his shock turned to fury when days later police officers turned up at his house to arrest him for assaulting the thug.

He was taken to his local police station and held in a cell for six hours before being interviewed. 

He was then charged with assault and battery and is due to appear before magistrates next week.

Mr Kink said he is appalled at the way he is being treated. He said: ‘I thought I was doing the right thing by making a bit of a citizen’s arrest. All I did was use reasonable force to hold him down.

‘The officers who turned up appeared grateful at first but now I am facing an assault charge.’

Mr Kink was sitting in his wife’s town centre bar in Weymouth, Dorset, when he heard a security alarm go off.

He went outside and confronted two men stood near to the Phone Zone store which had a smashed window.

Mr Kink, who is registered disabled following a motorcycle accident 20 years ago, said he was met with a volley of abuse from the pair before being hit.

He said: ‘“I accused one of them of smashing the window and he said “‘what the f*** has it got to do with you?”

‘He then took a swing at me and punched me just under my left eye. I grabbed hold of him and managed to sweep one of his legs from under him and I held him there by putting the toe of my shoe on his shoulder blade.

‘There were lots of other people around at this stage and somebody had hold of the other bloke he was with. When the police arrived I stepped back and he kicked off at them. When he was put in the police car he tried to kick in the windows.’

A few days later police turned up at Mr Kink’s home. ‘There were three police officers and a dog handler there. They told me I was being arrested for assault,’ he said.

The owner of the Phone Zone store, who did not wish to be named, said he has been left out of pocket by the damage.

He said: ‘I am very grateful for what Steve did and at the end of the day he has done the police’s job for them.

‘The damage to the window was £250 but I don’t know how and when I am going to get that back.’

A spokesman for Dorset Police confirmed that Mr Kink had been charged with assault over the incident.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
