On Saturday 13th August 2016 at 10.30am my Mum was violently mugged in Dalmally Passage, Croydon. There were 4 attackers and she was thrown to the ground with such force that her ribs were broken. They stole her iphone 4 which is totally worthless and then ran away along the Addiscombe Railway Park.
My 58 year old Mum suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder and has partial vision but these thugs had no regard for her disabilities or the consequences of their brutal attack. My mum used to frequently use Dalmally Passage to get to my Nan's flat off of Morland Road as my Nan relies on her for personal care and shopping but since the attack my mum now has to pay for cabs to go the short distance from her house in Addiscome as she is too afraid to use the passage and has since suffered several panic attacks when leaving the house.
Unfortunately the men who mugged my Mum have not been caught as there were no other witnesses and there is no CCTV present in Dalmally Passage. This petition is to ask Croydon Council to install CCTV throughout the passage to help aid the police if anything like this should happen again and also to act as a deterrent to future offenders and help to make the residents feel safer. This is something that I feel very strongly about and think would be very beneficial to the local community.
We, the undersigned, call on Croydon Council to install CCTV with the appropriate signs throughout Dalmally Passage, Croydon.
