I was saddened to receive this comment from reader Ben Patio:
Just a message for people living around the North Camberwell area, I was assaulted and robbed last night about 1am near Elmington Road. 9 times out of 10 I would get a cab back at that time in the morning, but for some reason I didn’t last night. Got a bit blase I think.
Anyway, not trying to scare anyone but wanted to let those people who often walk home early in the morning that there are some desperate people around.
And apologies to you Cheeks, this probably isn’t the sort of comment that you want on your blog, but i wanted to let everyone know.
You’re right, Ben, that’s not the sort of comment I want on my blog; I don’t want anyone to suffer being assaulted, let alone anyone I ‘know’.
I hope you get over this soon, and everyone else please be careful where you walk at night.
