  • First and foremost I hope the victim Is okay and recovering from his ordeal and being supported.

    Someone knows who this evil person is. This incidents is exactly an example why stop and search must continue. What a coward to carry a knife to threaten innocent people going about their own business. I hope the culprit is caught real soon.

    Police must realise CCTV much sooner while incidents are fresh in people’s minds.

  • * Release CCTV images much sooner.

  • Absolutely Graham could not agree with you more.

  • So, that makes 2 robberies and 1 rape in 1 year, wtf?!!

  • Similar incident has happened to me few years back. People who have not experienced this might not think much of it but it really is life changing. I hope the victim is coping well and this criminal gets caught soon.
    Muggings at knife-point seems to be a commonplace these days. The Police were fantastic at assisting me and the 3 who mugged me and threatened to cut me up have been caught.
    Something needs to change drastically.
