Hi all,

A quick warning: Was driving into work today at approx 07:15 and while driving down Abbey Street (on the way to the Rotherhite Tunnel) I witnessed a mugging under the railway bridge, just before Abbey Street hits Jamaica Road.

I couldn't actually make out much of what was happening as it was taking place behind the bridge arches, on the pavement, but I could make out that it was a tall, lanky dark-skinned man, in a pale green long-sleeved jumper. I stopped and honked the horn and that seemed to scare him away and promptly called the police who were there within minutes, but have no idea whether he has been found.

Well done for stopping Oli1982. Hope they caught the mugger.

hey Oli1982. Any update on this mugging. Can't tell you how much I appreciate the warning. When we all stick together instead of just letting the police handle things, we've got a better chance!!!!
