A supermarket was terrorised by an aggressive man in a Spider-Man outfit weeks before a sickening brawl at an Asda which sparked a police probe.
Footage has emerged on YouTube showing a man in the superhero costume on top of a frozen food cabinet appearing to fight a man in a karate outfit.
He shouted “Come on then you f****** c****” at shocked customers.
Tesco chiefs suspect the incident could be linked to a Tik Tok account suspected of being behind sickening violence at another supermarket in Clapham, South London, this week.
A source at Tesco told the Daily Mail: “We think it is the same group of people and are looking into what action was taken.”
The Mail reports that the footage was shared on an account featuring other stunts in supermarkets, including a flour fight.
It is thought they believe the more outlandish their actions, the more it will be viewed.
As The Mirror reported yesterday, horrific video taken weeks later showed terrifying violence unfold in front of customers at an Asda store.
Six people were injured in the incident, which saw a man in a Spider Man outfit lash out repeatedly at workers, including a female staff member who was punched to the ground.
In another horrific scene a man in a wheelchair was smashed over the head with a heavy object and punched by two men, causing him to topple over.
Shocked onlookers initially thought it was a social media prank as the group, which also included a man dressed as Ali G and another as Batman, confronted a lone security officer on the shop floor.
The man dressed as Spider Man was seen shoving the worker in the fresh produce section, before shouting obscenities at another.
He then walks through a double door leading to a stock room, where a violent brawl unfolds.
The man is shown punching at least two staff members, including one on the ground, before battering rivals with a pole.
A pallet is seen being thrown at him during the brawl.
In another sickening scene, a woman in the group slaps a staff member, who responds by shoving her to the ground.
At this point the man dressed as Spider Man emerges again, aiming a high kick at the supermarket worker before punching her in the face, causing her to collapse.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police told the Mirror:”Police were called at 22:40hrs on Thursday, 22 July to reports of a group of people involved in a disturbance at a supermarket on Lavender Hill, SW11.
