    Just a warning - was walking home tonight about 9.20 along Brockley Road toward Crofton Park and out of nowhere, as I went past the cemetery, a man shoved me from behind and then dragged me out into the traffic, grabbing the bag from my shoulder. He then raced off down Dalrymple Rd. Very scary - watch out, everyone.

    And just wanted to add a huge thanks to the police. Unbelievably brilliant - came within two mins of my call, drove me round looking to see if I could spot the guy, and even walked up Dalrymple Rd with me where we recovered hairbrush, packet of Nurofen, notebook and the end of a roll of Polo Mints. If anyone in that area comes across a paperback by David Sedaris or blue hardcover spiral bound notebook, various membership cards or shabby small green backpack please let me know! Am sure the thief wasn't interested.

    that's awful. having had the similar happen to me a couple of years ago (different part of London), it is a very unsettling experience. glad the police were helpful and hope they catch the baddie.
