Hi guys

Just be on your guard if you live near Devonshire Road Honor Oak Park Station end. 21:50 ish I heard female screams 'give it back give it back!' and shortly after a Police car arriving with sirens.

Sounds like a mugging to me. Be vigilant.

So was this actually on Devonshire Road or Honor Oak Park road?

Where were you when this happened?

It was, a guy snatched a woman's bag. I think just outside the station but he ran off up Devonshire Road / Boveney Road with it (chased by three or four people, including the woman). Police arrived about 5 minutes later, don't know whether they caught him...

I would just be a bit more aware of lags hanging around the station now that it's getting dark. This one was wearing a grey addidas hoody...

This is what I suspected.

I think people should be careful with the wording in titles of posts. Mad

a) It wasn't in Devonshire Road.
b) It was a bag snatch not an attack.

Good to hear the lady had help from the public. Smile

@ fishface - what's up with you? You are being a bit aggressive. I simply reported what I heard that night. Take it or leave it. It's what I heard from my property on Devonshire Road.

I heard it as well and it sounded like an attack. I happened to be upstairs so looked out of the window and saw the guy running off with the bag.
