The shocking footage was posted on social media yesterday with a second video of the aftermath.
It saw the shopkeeper screaming ‘bloody bi***’, ‘bloody ba*****’ at the woman in chaotic scenes.
He yells at a woman, who appears to be trying to calm him down, saying ‘It doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter’, before adding to another woman: ‘Look at you, bloody bi***.’
A witness, who shared the video on Twitter, wrote: ‘The owners actually did their best and didn’t really hit the girls they just protected themselves. I don’t know how they did that.’
The woman yells ‘are you dumb, are you dumb’ as another is led away by two men. One person commented: ‘How are they mad they got caught stealing and resorting to fighting the shop owners?’
One person commented: ‘Really hoping the lip gloss stand is still intact but what an actual waste!’
Another wrote: ‘How are they mad they got caught stealing and resorting to fighting the shop owners?’
And one woman added: ‘My parents had a shop and the struggle to survive is hard. Long hours and you don’t really take much home after overheads etc. These kids think they can just walk in and take what they want and fight back like they been done wrong.’
MailOnline has tried to contact the shop for comment.
The Metropolitan Police could not confirm any details surrounding the incident.
