Local police have reported an increase in street robberies by moped riders who
have been targeting Kennington, Waterloo and Stockwell for the past few weeks,
with up to half a dozen thefts a day. One local resident had their bag snatched
on Kennington Road this week. The method was apparently crude but effective –
two men in helmets on a motorbike with blacked out plates.
So please do take care of belongings such as handbags and mobile phones when you
are out and about.
