Karma is a dog

Glen has left his details with the police and if there is anyway that they can charge the guy with something then they will.
Then when he came home from work yesterday (he works in a food area in the city, which is why he and Poppy were in the city in the first place) and on Friday, the child free day from school and his day off, there was a man arrested there for some kind of indecent exposure to the kids. This would be 5 minutes walk from where the first incident happened, he was in a business suit and sounds from the description to be the same man. The fact that he is now being investigated does make me feel better.
What doesn't make me feel better, and the reason I shared the story, is that there are more like him around and they aren't going to be locked away forever, they don't walk down the street "looking evil" and a minute is all it can take. I don't say that to freak people out but this came as such a shock to me that I just wanted everyone to be aware that these things really can happen.

Then Glen did the right thing and perhaps that's why it happened to him and your little Poppy, to help prevent further tragedy... i'd like to think that there was purpose in your frightening experience x

Thank you for posting about your experience Cindy. Jack loves to run away from me and has no fear...sometimes it's easy to get complacent. You have reminded me to never ever get complacent again! I hope you are feeling ok xx

Oh my goodness, I just read your last 3 posts. What a horrible experience, I'm so glad everyone is ok. It's so terrifying to think it could happen that easily. Hope you are all doing ok. Hopefully the police will be able to do something.

Yes, thank you for posting about your experience - whilst none of us want to live in fear, it is best to be aware and therefore prepared and vigilant (god forbid)

I am SO glad Glen left his details, I was worried that the police weren't going to do anything. This is promising. If everyone is more vigilant, we can avert these potential disasters.

I am so relieved for you. I hope this helps in some way. Thanks again for sharing Cindy.

I really hope this is the guy & they come down hard on him.

Natasha Burns said...

Sorry I didn't see this post when I asked the question if the man was charged on your original post. It's scary to think this can happen in the blink of an eye. Hope you'll have a much better week this week

Michelle said...

Oh Cindy, I've just been catching up with my blogs and this story is just so frightening.

I hope you're all okay and that you're not dwelling on the "what if" too much.

Sending love and good thoughts to you..

How terrifying....and to think that if they'd been able to charge that particular guy after he snatched your gorgeous girl he may not have traumatised even more kids. I hope they throw the book at him.

I'm shaking as I read these posts Cindy. How frightening for you and your family. Glen was doing the right thing and that someone was so opportunistic makes me sick to the stomach. Thank God she is fine. Awful. I hope that the police can get him on something.

I have no words cindy, how awful and scary for you all
Im so glad poppy is ok and that this guy is at least being investigated
you are so right about evil, it talks and walks around looking very normal

Unbelieveable. I tell you, I have told so many your story just from twitter alon. It makes me so sad to think this actually.
I understand the law, and as much as I don't agree with it, like you said - what had to be done for the guy to be charged? Ok, he could have been taking her away from the gory details, but like you said, you don't carry her like he did, and you would go over the road or something first of all to let the parent know where you are and that you have their daughter.
The police need them to go one step further in order to be charged with actually doing something??? I would rather take the chance and try them first for intent than pay for a psychologist to treat my child for the rest of their lives. And mine for that manner.
There are too many sickos in the world.
