First time poster, long time lingerer.
Heads up for those around the Bermondsey Sq area - I've seen the tail end of two muggings in the past few days. As I only saw the victims seconds after both incidents I'm afraid I can't provide anything useful like descriptions of the perpetrators. Just wanted to remind everyone to be careful to keep bags close and not to walk while on your phone.
The first incident was Saturday around 10am near the corner of TBR and Grange Walk
. A woman was pushed over and had her phone swiped.
The second incident was today (Tuesday) at around 3pm. A woman was giving chase to a mugger on a bike who had swiped her bag on Decima St near the doctors surgery. Hopefully she caught him, she looked pretty mad! Unfortunately I had my baby with me so couldn't really help with the chase.
Be careful everyone!
