I’m new to the forum but have lived/taught in the area since 2015.
I was wondering if anyone else had had a run in with the quite intimidating man who sits quite regularly at the P12 bus stop outside Mama Dough and tends to either shout or start begging?
A few weeks ago he blocked myself + partner from leaving Sainsbury’s getting in our faces once we’d taken our masks off and kept us in the doorway until my partner went inside to buy him food.
Yesterday evening on my walk home from work the same guy was walking down the middle of Grierson/Garthorne road telling anyone walking along the road he’d bust them up/shouting aggressive nonsense at them.
I’m a little five five woman and I fully had an out of body experience when I realised he was catching up to me and I had no road to shoot off down having just passed Agnew.
I never know whether to contact the authorities (I grew up around a lot of antisocial behaviour in Croydon) but I am starting to fall more on Ubers if I’ve left school late/am avoiding our local shops.
