A trusted friend of mine receives communication from her local Police Forum and was kind enough to pass the latest warning on to me. Please take the time to read it and comprehend what it says. This could save your life.

This actually happened a few weeks ago on the M3.

It was early evening and a young girl stopped to get petrol. She filled her tank and walked to the store to pay for her petrol. The cashier told her “Don’t pay for your petrol yet…..walk around the store for a while and act as if you’re picking up some other things to buy. A man just got into the back of your car. I’ve called the police and they’re on their way.”

When the police arrived, they found the man in the back seat of the girl’s car and asked him what he was doing. He replied, he was joining a gang and the initiation to join is to kidnap a woman and bring her back to the gang to be raped by every member of the gang. If the woman is still alive by the time they are finished with her then they let her go.

It is rumoured (not yet confirmed) that there is a new gang being formed whose initiation qualifier is as detailed above.

The scary part of this is that because the guy didn’t have a weapon on him. The police can only charge him with trespassing … He’s back on the street and free to try again.

Please be aware of what’s going on around you and if possible your family and friends. LADIES you or one of your  family or  friends could be the next victim.

Please be careful when leaving your vehicle and make sure it is ALWAYS locked to prevent this from happening to you.

UPDATE 24/03/2009

Right. So we’ve established that the above email is a hoax. Please DO NOT let that detract from the value contained in the information below.

Ladies … I think it is important to read the following info for your own safety.

Things women should know to stay safe:
Please Take the time to read these pointers. There may just be one or two you hadn’t thought of.

  1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do:
    The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!
  2. If a robber asks for your handbag, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you … he is probably more interested in your handbag than you and he will go for the handbag. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
  3. If you are ever thrown into the boot of a car kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm through the hole and start waving. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
  4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their cheque book, or making a list). DON’T DO THIS! A predator could be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, and attack you. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.
  5. A few notes about getting into your car in a car park:
    • Be aware – look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and check the back seat.
    • If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most attackers surprise their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
    • Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the shop, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you backout.
    • IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
  6. ALWAYS take the lift instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot.
  7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!
  8. As women, we are naturally sympathetic – STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked ‘for help’ into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
