Just wanted to warn everyone about 2 youths maybe around 17ish who tailgated me into my building last night in Leathermarket Street and tried to attack me when challenged. The police are not sure if it was a straightforward attempt at mugging or an attempt to scout out the building for burglary. Anyway they didn't get anything except for one getting a clout round the head before running off.
Returning home to City Walk, around 11.35am, I saw 4 youths on Bikes. Two turned right towards Vesta Court [opposite Leathermarket] and the other two drove through City Walk, returning a few moments later up Morocco Street. I heard one shout 'How do you get in?' and they dropped their bikes, in order to take a run at the wall and into Leathermarker Court.
I didn't want to linger, for obvious reasons, and two of them saw me looking - but I did call the police, who arrived pretty quickly. They called me for more information but I think the youths had already gone.
Could there be a link to your experience, Urbanite? I told the police about that incident.
Not sure....really don't want to have to make the place like Fort Knox....but with little scallywags like this who can cause so much damage what to do?
Pleased to hear the police were on the scene quickly and can only praise their response last night...for both getting there quickly and being supportive...they often get negative press but last night they were very good.
@Ivanhoe and @ beetroot...thanks I'm fine just very annoyed really today and more so having just read P24's latest post about these kids.....grrrrrr
