Hi everyone, just wanted to warn you that there is a frequent mugger acting around Honor Park Station. On my case ( I am a female), he was waiting at the corner of Honor Oak Park road and Devonshire Road, he waited until I walked about 100 meters into Devonshire Road and then he ran behind me, pulled me on the floor and pulled my bag. I was not hurt, but I have a couple of scratches on my hand and bruises on my knee because he pulled me on the floor.

Description: Talk black guy (175-180cm), 25-30 years old. He had a beanie hat, no bear or moustache. A witness who came out of the station saw him running away towards the One Tree Hill park and she said he had a green jacket.

A local mini cab driver said (according to the description I gave) that he has seen this guy a couple of times in the Honor Oak Park area. He said last time he saw the mugger he tried to steal a bag from a woman, he was caught by two guys near the Honor Oak Park station, released the bag and ran away. The mini cab driver said the mugger always runs away in the same direction and he thinks he leaves in some blocks further away. Some people came out of their flats on Devonshire Road because I was screaming, they helped me and a lady said to me that another lady was mugged on 22nd Feb on Devonshire road too.

Unfortunately I was not coming out of the Honor Oak Park station, but off the P4 bus and at that time I was alone on the street and on Devonshire road, which has dark spots with no lighting, so I was the perfect target.

Please be careful and make sure you are not alone at night walking on the street, as this mugger might come back again. The police said this was typical - they wait from people to come out of the station and walking alone, especially on long roads like Devonshire Road.
