Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
Good morning. Just to be clear, he himself, did this and sent you the notice? You never went into the store nor were the police involved?
Thank you for the reply. So the order / notice was issued by the police when they arrived or by him? I am just trying to understand if this was court ordered or just issued by him, that you can not go into or on store property.
In a situation like this, a party would want to escalate the matter to the owner of the store or the corporate headquarters, if there is one. I say this because it has to be known and reported, that he is abusing his power as a manager and that there was no legal basis for him to issue the no trespassing warning or order. That he is acting outside the scope of his employment and authority and doing this as a result of something that is unrelated, to the use of the store and you as a customer. It is not a situation whereby you stole, were disruptive or did anything to harm the store or related to the store in any way. Ideally, they would lift/remove the order and allow you to shop there, if it can be shown there was no basis for him doing this. Moreover, you could go to the police and file a report for the alleged abuse and have him arrested and charged and you could likely ask that a restraining order be placed on him as well, if he wants to go this route.
You are welcome. They would need evidence of them in possession or using drugs, to make an arrest, so the allegation alone, would not be enough. However, as a victim of domestic violence, your testimony and statement to them, about what happened, could allow them to go after him, for this. Please let me know if there is anything else, as I would be happy to respond.
