Guy's street wrote:It doesn't surprise me to see this topic back at the top of the forum - I was walking home from Bermondsey St direction tonight, along Long Lane, as I came up Weston St and passed Leathermarket St I saw two lads matching the descriptions from earlier on, on bikes, hoods up, one white one black, cycling around going close to people on the pavement, having a good look at them and moving on. They did a loop around GS park, went back down through the estate following someone on foot.
I told my brother, who was heading back to the station, to leave his phone in his pocket as it was clear what they were up to, especially having read this discussion.
It was so blatant, and I'm sure these will be the same lads who others have seen, or been victim to. I don't know what, if anything, it would take for the police to do something proactive about something like this.
