Please be careful when walking home. Yesterday evening (21:45) as I was walking on Harper Rd (from Borough High Street
direction) a dark red Toyota Yaris pulled up alongside me and a man lent out of the passenger seat beckoning him toward me saying "come come".
I didn't and I inquired whether he required help (i.e. directions to somewhere) to which he responded "come come". By this stage I realised there were at least 3 men in the car and I was a woman on my own. I answered "no" and carried on walking.
The car sped off and stopped 100m further down Harper Rd (at end of shops parade/ Rockingham Street
) and the driver parked the car across the road (if there was oncoming traffic the Yaris would have blocked the traffic). The car remained in that position until I had continued walking down Harper Rd (past them) and I am not sure what they did once I turned onto Falmouth Rd (heading toward Roebuck). I have no idea why they did this.
I reported this really unusual/ odd behaviour to the Police via the non-emergency number last night. But this is just a simple message to those of you that use that route to take extra care.
