    Very concerned that this has not been made public earlier. I am a local childminder and resident who regularly walks with children across Stanshaws and also walk my dog to the local common adjacent to Stanshaws. There is also a pre-school very close to this road. Whilst i appreciate this could happen anywhere, i am very uneasy that this has occured so close to home. I have been there several times this week but will not be at ease walking this area now.

    Also just found out there was another mugging today at the end of Wheatfield Drive, by Winsbury Way! – Be aware when out walking

  3. Friend of the victim Says:

    If such things happen during the broad day light, that only shows how confident the muggers are that they can easily escape.

    How safe it is when we walk around with our kids during evening times? Who can answer?

    Not safe at all. My son was followed up the lane leading from Stanshawes last Wednesday (24th Oct) evening on his way home from work. The male person changed direction to follow him and hurried his pace. My son called me and i opened the door for him and the man stood staring at our house from about 100 yards away. Police were informed and they took a statement from my son. Result?……My 17 year old son no longer walks home from work and depends on lifts from his employers or us, his parents. Disgusting we should live like this. Even more worrying that he knows where we live. 🙁

    Its shocking to hear news like this..and that an incident had happened during broad daylight. How safe are we to walk around in that area? Can police take any action against this?
