A few incidents of mugging in Hyde Park, Woodhouse and Headingly


Dear Students
There have been a couple of cases of mugging in the Hyde Park, Headingly and Woodhouse areas recently. These areas are usually safe, however it seems that a group of young men/teenagers are doing it for 'fun', but taking people's mobile phones and handbags. They seem to be targeting people who look like students from the university.

If you live in these areas please avoid walking through dark places, shortcuts or the park alone when it is dark. Keep to areas that have a lot of light. If possible walk with someone or in a group. Do not use your mobile phone/mp3 player while you are walking, as you can attract unwanted attention. Do not carry important documents or a lot of valuables with you.

The Police have been alerted and there are more plain-clothes police officers on the streets in these areas now. However, it is better to be careful and avoid taking unnecessary risks. We hope they are soon caught and things return to normal as soon as possible.

Kind regards,
Veronica Omeni
Director of Studies
