Just a warning to all. Yesterday when I was parked in the Balham Waitrose car park someone stuck a metal implement in my back tyre. When I returned to my car and started reversing out, a ‘kind’ bystander Or so I thought pointed out that my tyre was flat.
While on a call to road side assistance they asked me to check the tyre model. When I was looking at the tyre a man quietly opened the passenger door and tried to make off with my handbag. I was super lucky as I somehow noticed the door move and ran around the car and managed to grab my bag off the offender.
This incident has been reported to the police and the waitrose staff were amazing in helping me. They do have cctv footage of it all, but I just wanted to warn local people that this type of scam is taking place and to be mindful.
