    He was in front of Monte’s on Friday afternoon at 5:15pm and did the same to me while I was getting off my bike!

    Guess it was dark?
    I walk on the road rather than the footbridge at night to avoid such problems.
    Which is not to say one shouldn’t be able to walk on the footbridge or that it was in anyway this woman’s fault for doing so. Absolutely not.
    But is to pass on some practical advice given to me long ago which I hope will encourage local women to stay on the streets after dark and not allow this assault to have a greater negative impact than it should.
