A man allegedly spat on a Geraldton retail worker who confronted him about stealing Skittles and unicorn stickers before headbutting a police officer during his arrest. Police say the 40-year-old man caused a scene at The Reject Shop at Stirling Centre about 1.30pm on Wednesday this week after he stole unicorn sticker pads and a large packet of Skittles. Geraldton police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Chris Martin said a shopper allegedly noticed the man acting suspicious as he walked around the displays. “The (alleged) offender has selected a large packet containing smaller packaged Skittle lollies along with two unicorn sticker pads,” he said. The shopper advised the store assistant of the unusual behaviour who made the call to police. Sen Sgt Martin said after the accused left the store, he began allegedly intimidating the store assistant and assaulting them in the car park area. “The (alleged) offender began to try and intimate the member of the public who rang police, accosting them in the car park and spitting on them,” he said. Sen. Sgt Martin said police searched for the 40-year-old man and located him at Hungry Jack’s in Geraldton. “During the arrest, the (alleged) offender headbutted police, striking an officer on the nose and vest,” he said. The man was refused bail and charged with assaulting a public officer, stealing and two counts of common assault. Franklin James Ugle, from South Hedland, faced Geraldton Magistrates Court on Thursday and did not make an application for bail. He has been remanded in custody and will reappear in South Hedland Courthouse on Monday, November 21.
