Just as I was unlocking my bike the rozzers turned up asking if it was my bike and a few other questions . Turns out some knobs tried to steal my bike and was caught by one of the monitored CCTV cameras. One of the 10 guys was caught and placed in custody unfortunately for me they have destroyed most of my bike
They sliced my saddle to pieces, kicked my cassette in and cut all my cables and top it all off kicked my back wheel in tis the season to be jolly right!
Depending upon the strength of the evidence available, you might be able to make a civil claim against the fool and costs should be minimal as it would be a small claim. It will obviously be easier to make something stick if the police pursue it, so badger them relentlessly to press charges.
But if all that fails, I'm with walkingbootweather.
PS, where was it?
I'm new to this so what do I do just ring them and badger them with the progress of the case?
And it was in Portsmouth Town center.
My sister is with the police in Portsmouth. I wonder if she was one of the one's who you spoke to? If you want, PM me and if we can work out it was I'll ask her about it and try and keep it moving on their side.
