Two very violent assaults in the neighbourhood have taken place in the last few weeks – both perpetrated by gangs of hoodie wearing black teenagers. As a result the police have been appealing for help from the public using their yellow boards.
A vicious stabbing happened in Mattock Lane on Sunday 17th September. Only a week later a savage beating was meted out to an off-duty policeman on Sunday 24th September near the junction of South Ealing Road and Little Ealing Ealing Lane, see photo right.
It seems only sensible to avoid groups of hooded youths at night right now until these evil people are caught.
