An 83 year old woman's been left seriously injured after she was knocked over by a suspected shoplifter running out of a department store in Wimbledon.

Police were called to St George's Road just after 2pm on Wednesday 20 August 2014 to reports two men had been seen shoplifting.

An 83 year old woman was hit by a man running out of the shop.  She was taken to hospital by paramedics and was said to be in a serious but stable condition.

A 40 year old man was arrested at the scene and later charged with one count of theft from a shop. He was released on bail to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates Court on 3 September 2014.

A 36-year-old man handed himself into police later the same day and was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.
