Wow this is hectic. 

 

Please take the 16 year old for trauma counselling. I was bike jacked 10 months ago and this morning a dodgy oke walked off the pavement and flight and fight kicked in and I sprinted off leaving my mates sitting there waiting for everyone else. 

 

It sits below the surface.

This area has become a hotspot now, a mate of mine was knocked off his bike about a month ago coming down Wetton bridge right before the football field, the 3 guys fled into the bushes on the left toward the informal settlement, mate picked up a half a brick and chased the guys, managed to hit 1 of them with a half a brick and managed to hold onto his bike then a few days later there was another incident reported at the same spot. Hope he gets his bike back.

Related: this morning two guys were on the M5 trying to jack cyclists in line with Bonnytown. One had a gun. They nearly got me.

 

Close shave. Well done.

Sickening. These informal settlements are a major contributor to these opportunistic attacks.

 

Extremely poor people, all living "off the grid" in terms of being legally identifiable and traceable and a police force that (with some exceptions of course) is "focused on other things" is never going to bode well for law abiding people.  :-(
