Be Careful - Stay Safe

This is a genuine email about a genuine incident, please read it, take note and then pass on to other females! <br /> Stay Safe <br /> <br /> About a month ago a woman was standing by the entrance to a shopping centre in Nottingham, passing out flyers to all the women going in. <br /> <br /> The woman had written the flyer herself to tell about an experience she had so that she might warn other women. <br /> <br /> The previous day, this woman had finished shopping and went out to her car and discovered that she had a flat tyre. She got the jack out of the boot and began to change the flat. A nice man dressed in a business suit and carrying a briefcase walked up to her and said, "I noticed you're changing a flat tyre, would you like me to take care of it for you?" the woman was grateful for his offer and accepted his help. <br /> <br /> They chatted amicably while the man changed the tyre, and then put the flat and jack in the boot, shut it and dusted off his hands. The woman thanked him profusely, and as she was about to get in her car the man told her he had left his car around the other side of the shopping centre and asked if she would mind giving him lift to his car. <br /> <br /> She was a little surprised and asked why his car was the other side. He explained that he had seen an old friend in the centre that he hadn't seen for some time and they'd had a bite to eat and a look around the shops for a while. He got turned round in the shopping centre and came out the wrong exit and now he was running late and his car was round the other side of the centre. <br /> <br /> The woman hated to tell him no because he had just rescued her from having to change the wheel all by herself, but she felt uneasy, then she remembers seeing the man put his briefcase in her boot before shutting it and before he asked her for a ride to his car, but she had remembered just one last thing she needed to buy. She said she would only be a few minutes, he could sit down in her car and wait for her, and she would be as quick as she could be. <br /> <br /> She hurried into the shopping centre and told a security guard what had happened, the guard came out to the car with her, but the man had left, she unlocked the boot, took his locked briefcase to the police station. <br /> <br /> The police opened it {ostensibly to look for ID so that they could return it to the man}, what they found was Rope, Duct tape and Knives, when the police checked the tyre, there was nothing wrong with it, the air had simply been let out. It's obvious what the mans intentions were and had carefully thought them out in advance. <br /> <br /> The woman was blessed to have escaped harm. How much worse could it have been if she had children with her and got them to wait in the car or had a baby in a car seat? <br /> This woman told this experience on the flyer she was passing out so that other women could be warned. <br /> <br /> PLEASE forward this on, it may save a life, he could be in any shopping centre. <br /> <br /> John Farren <br /> PC 769, Warwickshire Police <br /> Community Safety Liaison <br /> Warwick District. <br /> Tel: 01926 415000 Ext: 4395 <br /> Voicemail No: 10769 <br /> <br /> <br />
