On Thursday 11th June at Midday my brother who is a 30yr old adult was walking back from the post office, as he was walking past Goose green park near the Zebra crossing at the Roundabout he was stopped by a guy on a bike wearing a mask, he said he looked between 18-25 but was hard to say. The boy asked him not to move and was then approached by 2 others wearing masks who were on foot. They repeatedly asked my brother “what have you got for us” and one of them shouted “give me your phone fam”
My brother did not at first respond to them as he was trying to think tactically on what to do as he did not want his phone stolen, eventually the boy on the bike came off and they tried to gang up on him further, my brother grabbed one of them by his wrist and put him down on the floor, the other two started to kick and punch him until a man who was passing by near Mirash in a blue jacket (probably in his 40s?) shouted out and came to help him, the boys fled off down East Dulwich Road towards St Johns church.
Firstly we just want to thank the man who helped my brother, there were many people who passed by and although we can understand that some may not want to get involved for whatever reasons we just want to give our many thanks to him if he does see this or his family come across this post.
I know that no one is safe anywhere and harm is around every corner especially in London, but my brother and myself are just surprised that as adults we still have to face this, we hear a lot on the news or on social media about teenagers facing these issues. When we were teenagers and attended local schools we faced these things but now as adults it really is ridiculous! (Not saying that it’s any less for our children on the streets). What’s more shocking is that this took place in broad daylight!
I thought I would share and just give you all a little nudge to be cautious especially near Goose green as I have heard many other similar stories on the forum.
