Happy new year to you all!

i have had a report from a resident of St Margarets Road that she disturbed an attempted break in to her garage at approximately 3.15 in the afternoon on the 9th January. The man also attempted to break into the garage next door and according to the resident, didn’t seem to be remotely bothered that he was observed/disturbed in the process.

he was wearing blue jeans, black jacket and a black woollen hat and headed off in the Isleworth direction.

The incident has been reported to the police. If you experience anything similar, please also report it.

Footbridge meeting
there was a further meeting at the church this week with police and councillors. The outcome will be a series of measures that will help to try to discourage mopeds from using the Footbridge and therefore making Northcote Road an easy cut through/escape.

one of the key issues, however, is that the police rely on residents to report all incidents. This allows them to build up profiles of activity and potential repeat offenders, even if we do not see an immediate resolution to a problem.

So please, call 101 to report something, call 999 if a crime is happening right now.

if you don’t report, there is little that can be done about reducing crime. As a community we need to be decisive and proactive.

please email me after the event but don’t wait for me to do something about it – by that time it is too late!

Follow up on yesterday’s email on mopeds

There have been further attacks reported by Orleans secondary school of pupils having personal belongings stolen from them by riders on mopeds on the last couple of days. Please be extra careful with bags, phones etc while on the streets.

Last night I emailed our local councillors, Alex Ehmann, Ben Khosa and Geoff Acton and I have received assurances from all three that this has gone the the Borough Police Commander and the Councillor responsible for transport re barriers and other methods of prevention on the footbridge on Northcote road. The flurry of emails I have been copied in on suggests that the borough as a whole is facing a big problem with moped related crime, and that there is clear recognition of the unique situation that we have here with the footbridge.

There was a suggestion of meeting with residents, so I will pass on details if and when that materialises.

Please keep reporting anything suspicious and don’t hesitate to use 999 if you think it is necessary.

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH UPDATE

The following incident took place on St Georges Road, on the other side of the St Margarets Road, yesterday around 16.45 in the afternoon.

A resident was returning home in the car with his 10 year old and noticed 2 people on a moped acting oddly. As he parked on the drive one of the men came over and started to talk to him about having a number plate stolen and had he seen anything but keeping on his helmet, he also had a balaclava under the helmet. The resident was still in the car. He then asked for the time and when he didn’t give it he grabbed the car keys from the ignition. His son was still in the car so the resident tried to get the keys back and they struggled. The man then pulled out a large claw hammer and started shouting demanding the resident’s watch, coming towards him. He threw his fitbit at him. One of the men picked up the fitbit and realised it wasn’t a watch and they then became more threatening saying he was giving him 5 seconds still coming towards him with the hammer. By this time, his wife was speaking to the emergency services giving the address and they left on the bike.

As she came out she came out they took no notice of her as she asked what was going on and her husband shouted to call the police. Even as she was standing on the doorstep calling 999 they still didn’t leave but continued shouting and threatening. They only let when they thought the police were on their way.

The police think they know who it is. They are putting on extra patrols this evening.

The resident is OK just shocked and a few cuts and grazes. Their 10 year old son is just very frightened, he stayed in the car the whole time.

Needless to say, if you see youths hanging around on mopeds, the frequency and severity of crime we are experiencing right now suggests get to a place of safety and call either 999 if a crime is happening, or 101 if you feel unsafe/unsure.

There has also been a report today of a handbag snatch from a lady on Richmond High Street, by a thief on a moped. Please be extra careful of your bags as it seems it is too easy to snatch something from a shoulder of hand when travelling on a moped at speed.

There have been a spate of thefts recently of parcels left on doorsteps going missing.

It has become fairly common practice to leave parcels on doorstep, Amazon being the worst offenders for this, and someone has targeted our neighbourhood in helping herself to parcels on doorsteps.

Luckily, she has been captured on film by a resident and we are able to share this with you all.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/kw3ry830lucvas6/LadyStealingParcel.mp4?dl=0

So, this is a woman in her 20s or 30s, pushing a buggy with a child in it and a small lint brown/ginger dog on a lead. She is helping herself to what appears to be multiple parcels from front doors in our streets.

Please, if you find parcels have gone missing, report this to 101 and refer to this footage which has been sent to the police.

In addition to this, there is a Police Meeting taking place which residents are welcome to attend.

These meetings are arranged three times a year and it’s an opportunity for Coordinators and residents to come and talk to us about your concerns, to hear about crime issues and trends in the ward and what your local police team are doing to tackle it.

On this occasion, Adults Safeguarding Team will be attending our meeting to show a worthwhile PowerPoint as part of multiagency working with Health Professionals and Police reaching out to the wider community.

Also, Chris Connelly, RFU Community Relations Officer will be there and St Margaret’s and North Twickenham dedicated Police Officers.

Police Liaison Group (PLG) Meeting
Tuesday 21st November 2017 at 7.00 p.m.
Twickenham Stadium, RFU, Whitton Road, TWICKENHAM TW1 7BA

Please let Eugenia Venour know if you would like to attend:
