Police issue e-fit of suspect after teenager with leukaemia robbed

This is awful :-(

Police investigating the robbery of a teenage boy with leukaemia in Leeds have released an e-fit image of the suspect.
The 17-year-old victim was attacked and robbed at knifepoint at about 5pm on Monday, March 7, as he walked down a ginnel between Dixon Lane and Henry Avenue in Wortley. A gold-coloured iPhone 6 that had been given to him by a children's cancer charity was stolen.

The suspect, who was described as white, aged 19 to 20, slim, about 5ft 11ins tall, with a spotty complexion and a scruffy beard, rode off on a black mountain bike along Henry Avenue towards Kellet Road. He was wearing a black coat with a hood, black tracksuit bottoms and had a black drawstring bag on his back, which had a white Newcastle United logo on it.
Despite an excellent response from the public to our previous appeals for information, we have not yet been able to identify the suspect.
We have worked with the victim to produce an e-fit image and we believe it will be a good likeness of that person. We are asking people to put that image together with the physical description, the Newcastle United bag and the CCTV of him riding off on a bike and contact us if they think they know who it might be.
This was a really frightening experience for the victim who already has enough to cope with and we remain determined to do all we can to find the person responsible.

Lets just hope that catch this scumbag and get the poor lads phone back for him !!

Hi Honey...I'm Home ........but not a very happy camper.

Well......I am back :-)

No doubt many of my regular readers will be wondering what on earth happened to this blog shortly after my court case regarding the RTA in April 2014. The truth is, after the catastrophic outcome of my claim , which was rejected due to a very good Barrister on the defences side, and ...well lets say, not such a good one on mine!!

I don't want to go into detail on here, but suffice to say the fact that the shock outcome has cost me dearly. Not only have i lost over £6500 in damages, had to endure almost 2 years of stress and financial hardship, but i lost the most wonderful car I think I will ever own....Scarlett the Scirocco :-(

The Ultimate indignity arrived recently. A bill from my "No win,No Fee" legal team...for almost £2800 !!

For what I ask?

Anyway. I won't be talking about this right now except to say that i am taking legal advice from the Legal Ombudsman and a firm of solicitors i have contacted who are very interested in carrying out a review of the entire case ....lets see what they make of the numerous points that I feel need clarification !

The bottom line?

I have a badly damaged Mk2 called Scarlett still sat on my drive and another road worthy Scirocco of the same year,colour and age awaiting transformation to become Scarlett's heir and successor .

I am bruised, battered and angry...but hey, In August I have been living with cancer for 10 years, so life NEEDS to go on and I need to get myself back on track.....I will let the legal experts do their job and hopefully get a few answers as to how this sorry state of affairs came to be .....

Scirocco 2 Morocco.......much more than just a Car !!
