I posted about an incident some weeks back here: Trying to ID local trouble maker after threat to briefly recap, on my way to work one morning some low life nutter tried to attack me, I managed to wrestle him to the ground when he came at me and I made a swift exit. Aware of alarming levels of aggression I was watching my back and good job I did because I just managed to avoid him as he cycled up behind me ready to smash me with a house brick by jumping in the back of a stranger's car. He made sinister threats as he stalked the car at a traffic light so I took a photograph of him but unfortunately gave him the idea to do the same. The incident left me quite unsettled due to the proximity to my house / route to work / fact he has a photo of me and just how sinister he was in his willingness to use extreme violence. The police came round, took copies of the image etc but haven't identified him. When I try convey what level this guy was operating on people seem to think his threats were hollow, he'll reflect, forget etc - he won't, and he has me as a marked man as far as I'm concerned, or at least the risk is enough for me to take seriously. Anyway the update. With the police not being able (finding the time?) to ID him I have been asking about a bit. A few newsagents thought he looked familiar but after I thought I caught sight of him for the second time since I went to a nearby supermarket and showed their head of security. He nodded and instantly recognised him. He confirmed this guy is bad news and is seen loitering in the car park "almost daily" with a gang. OK I thought, well I knew that already and it wasn't too far from where he attacked me so I'm hoping he lives that end and doesn't venture down my end too often. The good news is he said I can give him the crime reference number and next time he has an incident he can let the police know. A few days later I am talking to someone with privileged information who asks to see the picture, his face dropped. I need to be careful with what I say here as this person has responsibilities, wider picture etc on community issues is seems this guy spends much of his time in a crack house which I have learnt of its location. He was quite serious in his warning "these people are the lowest of the low, the dredges of depraved humanity" I have it on good authority that not only is this place operating as a crack house it is operating in child sexual exploitation. It is fronted as the most uninviting (now I know why) grocery shop, bare shelves, windows with cages over them, lights off and some nasty looking bloke standing in the door way, as if to deter anyone stupid enough to actually attempt popping in for milk. What is really worrying is not only is this only a few hundred meters from my house (and on the opposite direction from the super market), my street is the only direct route one would take between these two locations he is know to frequent. The person I was talking to was unable to give me a name but upon my insistence I needed to feel safe I was advised to stay north of Road X where said crack house is located. As I said I only live a few hundred meters north of this street and the supermarket is northwards of my house anyway. I had the idea to check the catchment area which would put these two people in contact and the boundary is virtually on said road, if my reasonable assumptions are correct it leaves only a small cluster of streets where this guy could be based. It is so close to my home and he must pass my house daily if he's spotted up the other end so often. I'm not suggesting this crackhead has any sort of authority to escalate his threats towards me, but the places he hangs out are operated by some of the most notorious Yardie gangs based in Harlesden. I do however assume he has circulated my photograph around associates. Perhaps I have been thinking this through too much and this guy can't even remember it, but while I may be talking worst case scenario it is a threat I take seriously and is really impacting how comfortable I am around my own area. I just need peace of mind and want to find out exactly who this guy is and put it on a plate for the police because they don't have the time to actively investigate this kind of thing. I can hope the supermarket security ID him and the police actually follow through, I'd imagine they'd only do that if he was arrested at the time for another offence. I can check the codes of contact for the person I spoke with and see if I can convince him there is a case for breaking confidentiality. I intend to contact the more specific 'Safer Neighbourhood' police teams (the station that dealt with me is actually based relatively far away) and see if they can ID him as they'll have a better local knowledge of local petty criminals, his location I suspect is actually on a couple of boundaries. I have been incessantly searching community Facebook groups, Google images attached to local papers with "&imgtype=face" (as I know he has served prison time relatively recently) etc to no avail. I have even considered trying a paid for facial recognition site called Wolftam Alpha which is supposed to be a very powerful tool but think given the quality of the image with this guy's hood up might be a waste of time, and I doubt he's all over social media posting selfies. I just know what else to do? I don't really have any specific advice I'm looking for, mostly just venting so apologies for the paranoid ramble. One question I do have, if anyone is involved with the Police Service, CPS etc - is there any chance this guy would even get charged given the only evidence is my statement and a photograph of him leering through a car window? I have even searched any number of term combinations on social media to see if any one who thinks people care what they're doing at any given minute happened to post #hoodie #brick #pedestrian, #OMGsomerandomjustjumpedinthebackofmycar given there were about fifty witnesses sitting in traffic.
