Just wondering if any other females have had the mis-fortune to encounter a guy that is approaching women and making very lewd, confrontational remarks
Before this morning, he had on two separate occasions made very suggestive comments as he walked past, both time near the top of Long Lane
by Tennis Street
. This was unsettling but i just kept on walking towards Borough Tube station.
However this morning, he stopped me close to the junction with Kipling Street
, with a very polite "excuse me" which i assumed was someone asking directions/the time, but then as he started making sexually explicit suggestions, realised it was the same guy and quickly hurried on(admittedly after swearing fairly loudly in his directions). He then grabbed his crotch and made lewd noises
This mornings incident was at about 7.50am. My two previous 'walk by' encounters were both around 8.20am.
I had to hurry to catch a train form Euston so wasn't able to report it to the Police straight away, but did go into Borough Police Station this evening and have reported it.
They have said they will try and see if the Local Community Safety Team can put some people around the Long Lane
area at that time in the morning with the hope of 'catching him in the act'
I did feel unsettled this morning. It feels like he was bolder and certainly more aggressive in his words. I urge anyone else who encounters him to also report it to the police
