A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Is anyone else (especially women) having problems with anti-social and threatening behaviour in the area? About a month ago, when I was walking home from the tube station one night, I was followed by a man who kept approaching me - in the end I had to shout at him to leave me alone. Then tonight I was sworn at by a young man near Bowes Park rail station. He was with two other men, one of them tried to beg off me and when I shook my head and murmered no, his charming friend swore at me aggressively. I've just reported it to the police on their non-emergency number (101). They said they'd let police who are out in the area know, so they can check these men out.
It's such a shame - I've lived in this area for years and never had any problems but it doesn't feel so safe now. If this kind of thing happens to any of you (and I really hope it doesn't - it's quite intimidating, especially if you're a woman walking on your own) please do report it to the police on 101.
Sorry you had to experience that, Charlotte. Thank you very much for letting us know though. If I experience anything similar I will definitely report it straight away now.
thanks Sophia appreciate that.
