Greenstead Road is quite long. It might be useful to know roughly where this attack took place.

At least the 3rd incident involving men in a silver fiesta so I expect they are checking records for these in this area - don't worry little boys our bigger boys in blue are a coming your way real soon. Hope the poor 21 year old is ok.

And Colchester is a safe place? My son was a legitimate guest at the party when poor Jay was killed. Three weeks later he and his friends were robbed at gun point on the Hilly Fields walking home from college. My friends son came face to face on Colchester station platform with one of the lads who tortured and killed a young mum by the river at Middleborough 8 years ago - he's out already! Another lad I know is only just getting back to work after 18 months following being attacked in town by a lad who admitted he thought he was someone else.

And the mp for town of bob is worried about a rotting pike of masonry with a bucket on top!

I was born and bred in Colchester 46 years in total, a fun place to grow up.
But now it is just full of aggressive people. every time I return to visit family I hate it. So glad I moved away!
And please don't tell me all places are like it now.
Small town with big bad attitude!
