Hilly Fields  incident

A female BC reader writes:

On Tuesday, while walking my dog at about 6.30am, I was grabbed near the Vickers Hill entrance of Ladywell, by a man who tried to reach in to my pockets before I screamed and he ran out of the park. I have always found Hilly Fields to be safe but I just wanted to make other people aware of this incident
