Just a warning to anyone who uses BHS on their way home. Was approached on Thurs eve by two asian looking lads. I'd had a few to drink so was a little tipsy. They approached me outside the bus stop opp Chicken Cottage
& next to late night paper shop & asked for a cigarette. I didn't have any but they acted very 'over-friendly', patting me on the back & putting their arm around me. Think they realised I was a little worse for wear. As I left I checked my pocket & realised my phone had gone. Went back to them & grabbed one by the arm. He surrendered it back quite quickly. They said they were from Tunisia. I left them after that, more annoyed than anything.
Next evening(Fri) was on my way home & I'm very sure I saw them again. This time outside Subway taking a cigarette of a guy in a very similar state to me the night before. Again they were patting him on the back acting very over friendly. I was moving at pace so didn't stop, wish I had. Be worth bearing in mind if they are still operating in the area. Stay safe people...
