messageAttempted mugging Lordship Lane (01 May, 2019)
Posted by lucyp23 01 May, 2019 18:14

Hi all,
This afternoon, whilst riding my bike, just before 3pm at the junction of Lordship Lane and Crystal Palace road, I was the victim of an attempted mugging by two boys on bikes. After shouting at me to get off my bike, one of them came up beside me and attempted to steer me off the road. Thankfully the one shouting came off his bike and I managed to mount the kerb and get away. Not sure what would have happened if he’d managed to stay on his bike. Please everyone be aware of your surroundings. Unsure as to why I was set on, maybe just opportunists.
Big thank you to the kind man at the bus stop who stayed with me whilst I called the police.
Stay safe,
Lucy

I'm sorry for what happened; I can imagine it was very frightening.

I suspect they did want your bicycle. There are more and more reports of this happening.

Do try not to think of what might have been: you are safe now. I hope you have enough emotional support and comfort at home.

I wish you well.

attach a attack alarm on the handlebars, when someone tries to rob you pull the cord and it will sound a deafening alarm120db, they sell them on amazon and are keyring size.

Please report this. There is a spate of muggings and I am not at all sure that police are doing enough, the more reports the more pressure to do so.

Mid january 2020 around 6:30pm on the well lit recreational ground path my 53 year old brother was knocked from his bike by another cyclist resulting in the cyclist and 3 of his mates demanding money, phone , wallet and pin number for card or else.!......said to be somalian looking around 16/17 years old
Brother handed over the items.....they took £500 from account before the cards were stoped
Brother has seen one of the guys regularly in the local area......he’s keen to leave it but I’ve suggested he should at least let the police know this scum bag is still around likely to steal or worse still harme someone

Please have him report it to the police.
If they did this to a man they wouldn't think twice about doing it to a woman with baby or an elderly person.
This sort of thing MUST be reported.
If no one reports it how can we demand safer streets?
We need stats to back up our complaints that the we need more patrols, more surveillance and more to the point if one of the robbers has since been spotted by your brother in the local area he owes it to all of us to report and give a full description.
He could save someones life by doing so.
Lives have been lost via street crime

Your brother really has to report this, these scumbags are walking free & probably mugging other people, he may have been lucky (this time) but others won't be.

Have any women with babies / elderly persons been attacked ?

Not sure Bank will refund unless it's reported - bank may have already done so.

The good thing is if you give your pin under duress they still refund (what else can you do)

They may well be..this is what we hope to avoid.
Also I dont see how the OP's brother could claim back the loss of money out of his account without a crime number

Apologies John - I have only just seen this. This sounds very much like the MO of a gang who have also been targeting children at the local private schools and stole the phone of the young son of a colleague. However, the same family whilst out the next week fortunately parked their car in a different location to usual,the gang was spotted, the Police called, and the four youths arrested. The word is that the youths were working for other, more experienced criminals who were using the stolen phones to obtain contacts, who were then sent phishing messages to obtain access to bank details. Sounds like a 21st century gang of Artful Dodgers working for Fagin.

if they steal a phone and you have a password on it. do they still have a easy way of accessing the information on it?

They were making children put the password in at the time of the robbery (which meant they could then change it)
