A reminder to be careful with phones in public… especially dont walk to close to the roadside of the pavement whilst using one - My wife had her phone snatched out of her hand by a passing cyclist whilst she was walking down from the horniman to forest hill. It happened about 4.30pm yesterday, but unfortunately, by the time other passer-bys realised what had happened he had disappeared.

Interestingly, when I came on here to raise it as a warning, I found this previous thread and my wife is fairly sure it was the second guy in the photo above, although the report seems to suggest he should be in prison currently?!

Ever since the spate of phones being snatched, whenever I’m at a bus stop, I either stand in a shelter or right back against a wall to check bus times. I’m also very wary about getting my phone out walking down the street, especially at night! You would think where your wife had hers taken it would be safe, but obviously not :slightly_frowning_face: I hope she cancelled it ASAP.
