My friend had her phone stolen out of her hand this afternoon about 2.30pm on Hampden Road - two guys on a motorbike drove onto the pavement from behind her and grabbed it out of her hand. The police (who were great), said there have been a spate of moped phone muggings today in our area so wanted to warn people to be vigilant.
Thanks for this warning. I hope your friend is okay. I suffered a moped theft years ago and it was very scary.
I think there were a couple of thieves on bicycles around crouch end/tottenham lane last week too.
Many years ago I was 'mugged' while riding home on my bike by a guy on a moped who pulled alongside and nicked my bag with everything in it including house keys. It's nothing new, I'm afraid.
Sorry to hear. This has happened alot. The police have intervened. Raids.
