The last two nights, walking home from the gym at about 7:30pm-8:00pm, there have been a group of people throwing eggs at pedestrian. This happened to me both Monday and Tuesday nights at the corner of New Kent Road
and Rodney Place, where eggs were thrown (aimed VERY close to me!) from the higher grounds of the Heygate estate. It is very infuriating for pedestrians, and not to mention what a waste of eggs!
My boyfriend phoned up the Southwark Council
to report this anti social behaviour, but as it turned out the council only then sends an email to the police to notify of the incident. If we were to report to the police directly, it would have been a tedious interviewing process, not to mention that the reporters do not remain anonymous.
But the major thing is, I suppose those "kids" would never get caught. (I say kids to describe the immature mental age of these people, as I do not know whether they were adults or teenagers, etc) It is just such a shame this has to happen, and nothing would be done about it. I just hope they run out of money soon to buy these eggs so I can walk safely home without having my good jacket ruined.
Just a good rant to lift it off my chest!
