Has anyone else noticed this unpleasant man? If you walk down Dartmouth Road, he is outside Paddy Power pretty much every day, either on the benches or stalking around outside the Sylvan Post..

Although the street drinkers in this area have been a problem for some time, this particular man is having a really negative effect on the area by shouting, swearing and acting in a really aggressive manner towards passers-by and in general to no one. I've witnessed him numerous times standing by the side of the road screaming and making what looks like stabbing/shooting gestures.

He seems to be mentally unstable, which isn't helped by the fact that he spends most days drinking alcohol on the street and smoking weed. Recently I've seen him hassling people at the Sylvan Post benches for money and cigarettes and kicking over street bins.

Anyone else seen this? We really shouldn't have to put up with this intimidating behaviour on our streets. As we know, Forest Hill is home to many families, and I've seen dozens of young kids looking terrified as their parents hurry them along. I'm a grown man and he makes me feel uncomfortable when I walk past.

I've spoken to the Safer Neighbourhoods Team and they are aware of this man - and are trying to stop his antisocial behaviour. The more reports they get, the quicker he can be dealt with.

Anyone else witnessed this?
