SAUD’S AWARENESS TIPS
MUGGING/ASSAULT ON THE STREETS – if someone suspicious crosses over the road to your side, you should cross to where he came from. If he follows you again, get ready for a possible confrontation. KIDNAPPING – if someone suspicious looks at you and then focuses on your child, there’s a chance they’re considering kidnapping. It can happen so quickly – one person distracts you and then another snatches the child. They then quickly pass the child on to someone else, who passes her on to someone else, and so on, until there’s no trail. Be alert. CAR SMASH AND GRAB – take care when someone talks to you at a traffic light as another person can easily approach from the other side while you’re distracted and smash your window to take your bag. AT NIGHT – be careful when leaving clubs or parties. Don’t jump into any car just because they say they are a taxi. Check them out properly. AT HOME – beware of people posing as police. Check IDs. If they don’t have a proper court warrant, don’t let them enter your house. RAPE – rapists often watch their chosen victims to learn their routines. They will wait for a quiet moment to strike, so always be vigilant . Try to vary your daily schedule – take different routes to work or leave home at different times each day.
