Neighbourhood thug

A message from a neighbour:-

“Hi everyone,

I thought it wise to bring to your attention that there was a young man in his early 20’s snooping around the basement storage areas of peoples’ properties in Springfield Road late last night. I saw him walk down into what I think was either No. 130 or 128 (I haven’t checked yet and can’t quite remember), and look inside the under stair storage there.

He is in his early 20’s, white, about 6’, roundish face, stubble and was wearing a dark hoody, and frankly, looks like a thug. If you see him DO NOT APPROACH HIM OR CONFRONT HIM and call the police as he is a dangerous and violent individual and will attack you. He was with whom I can only assume was his girlfriend who was around 5’5”, dark, almost black hair, tied back in a pony tail. She was quite round and “shapely”, but not fat and was wearing black jeans, and I think a white jacket with fur around the hood. I have already reported him and our altercation to the police and he will be arrested for ABH if caught.

So, if you have anything valuable in your storage then I suggest putting an extra large padlock on it or moving it inside the house.

And remember, don’t have nightmares.”

A cautionary message from a neighbour in Southdown Avenue

​”​On Thursday eve at 7.30pm I found two guys jacking up my hybrid car outside my house. I assumed they were after my wheels and chased them away, although they were so brassy they started by insisting​ it​ was their car not mine! I called the police but they arrived too late. A couple of hours later I got into the car to find they had actually succeeded in remo​v​ing my entire exhaust including the catalytic converter. Very valuable. One of the guys had a scouse accent, 5ft 10, early 30s, lumberjack hat. The other lurked in the shadows.​ Subsequently I have been told this is a new wave of car crime, so be aware.
