UPDATE: Polce appeal for information after attempted robbery in Chafford Hundred

Thurrock Gazette: The attempted robbery happened on the cycle path which leads to Saffron Road The attempted robbery happened on the cycle path which leads to Saffron Road

POLICE are appealing for information following the attempted robbery of a teenager in Chafford Hundred.

A 16-year-old male was walking up the cycle path which leads to Saffron Road at about 1.40pm on Friday, January 31, when a man on a pink BMX approached him and asked for a cigarette.

The victim told him he did not have one and carried on walking.

The suspect then pulled out a knife and asked the victim for money. The victim told him he didn’t have any, and handed over his bag instead, but the robber did not take it.

They were then disturbed when a person walked round the corner and the suspect cycled off empty-handed.

The suspect is described as white, aged in his late teens, of average build, with dark brown hair and clean shaven. He was wearing a long dark grey padded jacket which was zipped up with the hood up over his head.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who recognises the description or who may have disposed of a pink bike, or had one stolen recently.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Grays CID on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

If I had to hazard a guess I'd say that one of chaffords druggies is the latter.

Nothing to do with the cycle lanes. These lanes were here when the houses were first built and we didn't have hardly any crime in the area. Then they started paying the inner London ghetto dwellers to move in and that's when the crime started. Talk to any of the original inhabitants of the area and they will tell you the same. Why do you think the original inhabitants are now being forced to move away and you wonder why people become racist.
