Hi all, just a warning that my phone was stolen by a ‘friendly mugger’ on Saturday morning at about 2am on Albion Street whilst crossing the road at the crossing. He came up to me and started grinding against me, I pushed him off and then he started again. I just walked away and it was too late before I realised that he’d taken my phone from my pocket.
Reported it to an officer in the street who told me that shit happens, and then reported it properly but they closed the case before they’d even asked me for more details. Brand new £1000 phone taken by some scrote who decided it was his.
Be very wary of people when you’ve had a drink, I think he targeted me because of that, and also I was holding food in my hands so they were away from my pockets. With the town also getting busier as we head towards Christmas they’ll be having a field day pickpocketing. Be careful.
