Keep your wits about you if using Woolwich Dockyard station after a number of robberies in recent day.
I was tweeted by one victim who was robbed last night. It was the 4th in three days.
Whilst I have your attention:
Warn everyone to steer clear of Woolwich Dockyard Stn, especially at night —got mugged there last night —****ers got my iPhoneX —to be fair, cops arrived pretty quickly, but not quick enough. I was victim 4 in 3 days, at same spot🤯

The police then replied:

Take care in the area.
The station is unstaffed most of the day (like even the busiest Southeastern stations are in the evenings). TfL were planning to place staff at stations from first to last train if they took over Southeastern Metro routes.
Chris Grayling and the Department for Transport then blocked it. Now the situation of unstaffed stations is likely to continue in the next franchise.
