I thought I should just warn everyone living in the Shad Thames
area that there have, apparently, been a spate of muggings here recently. This information came to me from an Ocado delivery driver who told me that he was mugged in Shad Thames
at 5pm a couple of weeks ago. The muggers (3 of them) were black men and looked to be in their twenties. They threatened him with a knife and took his bag, which contained an ipod etc.
He reported it to the police, but to no avail.
The delivery driver also said that other drivers had been mugged recently in the side streets off Shad Thames
either for shopping or for their own bags. He said that he thinks they are professional thieves. He also said that Ocado is considering stopping deliveries in the area.
I'm afraid that's all the information I have, so please take care!
