Attempted Robbery at gun point in sitting trafficMon, 13 January 2020, 8:05 PM - (4 months ago)
As I was sitting in traffic on the right land lane, a man appeared to be walking on the island and then he approached the drivers side of the vehicle. With the left hand side of his body he lent against the drivers door, and pulled out a gun with his right hand. He demanded that the driver open the window or that he would shoot. He banged the gun Loudly against the window pane creating scratches on the glass and leaving face marks. He banged the gun approximately five or six times demanding that the window be opened or that he would shoot. He said this several times. There was no room to drive off, as the pavement island has bollards on it, and there was no room to go forward as the peak hour traffic was awaiting the traffic light. These bollards should perhaps be removed? I refused to open the window and then he moved through traffic looking for another potential victim....
