I was walking along Tooley Street
Wednesday evening at around 5pm when I saw two white youths on bicycles hanging around that Red Bull
place. I found it odd that they were just sitting there on there bikes doing nothing. Moments later they overtook me on the pavement, which was also odd as it was so narrow due to the pedestrians and the building works. They then came from behind a 2nd time and tried to overtake me on the side where I was carrying my camerabag, even odder because there was more space on the other side but then I realised that on that side there was one of those sidestreets leading to the riverside, i.e. what by then I thought was an escape route for them if they'd managed to snatch the bag from behind and cycle off. It seemed timed that way. By then I was quite sure I was being targeted and this was confirmed as I saw them cycling past again, this time on the opposite side of the street, but they then turned around and came back cycling towards me, on the pavement, but nothing happened. Very odd...
