The incident is recorded as happening at midnight last night, Thursday, May 18, at Creations Hair and Beauty in Southgate.

Manager Emma Shepherd said: “It looks like he’s having an argument with his girlfriend and then headbutts the window.

“It’s painted glass so he probably didn’t even know it was a window and when it smashed he ran off.

“I hope he had a sore head in more ways than one this morning.”

It happened at the side of the salon in Deanery Farm Lane and Emma is waiting for a quote for the repair as she considers contacting the police.

“It’s not very nice,” Emma said. “Chichester is a very different place at night to what it used to be.

“After a busy night we quite often come in in the morning to find beers bottles scattered and sick up the door and pavement.”
