Have any other women been followed and then groped by a young male around Druid Street/Tower Bridge Road/Tanner Street? If you have, I urge you to come forward to the police. This needs to be stopped.

I know the intention of this post is honourable as a female that lives just off those streets the inference that a lot of women are being assaulted by the same man but no one is hearing about it and more importantly you have left no description of who this assailant might be has irked me. I am now scared but I don't who and what to be scared of. Please can you provide more background to this post. Forewarned forearmed and it's early dark nights now. Thanks in advance. And yes women please do report. Apologies if you have been attacked.

Julia you'll see a description in the news article on the home page.

I'm surprised - I've never felt unsafe around there. It's good to know we should be careful, I guess.

But that about Weston street 15 mins opposite direction.

Hi anonMouse,

I totally agree, it's horrible not feeling safe in your local borough. Me and my friend have reported a similar crime on Maltby Street for a man that fits the same description. I'd urge anyone else who sees him to do the same thing and protect our local community. He was very threatening - these things should not be taken light heartedly.

I had no intention of scaremongering. I simply cant give a description for legal reasons. He was arrested and released and has terms of bail that mean he most likely wont strike again. I simply want to urge anyone who has experienced this before to call the police as we need more witnesses to come forward to put a stop too this. My advice, take your ipod headphones out when walking home an
d just be more aware of your surroundings.

Thank you for posting this anonMouse, it's the age old problem. We will be more aware and hopefully any other people who have had similar experiences will see this thread and get in touch.
