He also told police that during the incident the woman, alleged to have been working on an e-cigarette stall on the floor above, poured water on his laptop while leaning over the banister.

He has alleged it happened after a customer at the upstairs stall complained about an e-cigarette they had been sold.

The incident took place on Thursday, January 9, in the St Nicholas Centre, in Sutton High Street.

A 40-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assault and causing criminal damage.

She has been bailed to return pending further enquiries.
