Yesterday afternoon (July 4th) at around 4:10 my 10-yr old was on Wakehurst about to cross Alfriston on his way home from school when the driver of a pickup rolled down his window and told him he could cross. The second my son stepped on the road the man sped by laughing out loud and yelling something along the lines of “silly kid”.
Don’t have much of a description of the driver other than it was a man who looked “weird” and the vehicle was a black pickup with red logo/lettering.
Not sure I can go to police with such vague details but wonder if anyone might have been passing by and witnessed the incident? My son seems to remember some older kids from Belleville Wix were around but sounds like the were walking in the opposite direction.
Please warn your kids to be careful.
I'm very sorry to hear about this. It's quite sinister. I would suggest that you knock on the doors of people down that road, while it could still be fresh in their minds, or while they may still have footage on their CCTV in front of their doors. Please let us know if there are any developments and I hope your son is not affected for too long or strongly.
