Hi all, I just wanted to mention something that happened to me today involving a known trouble making gang (according to the Police I spoke to after).
Well I was leaving the local shopping centre and hopped on my bus to head home, when 6 of the apparent local “knowns” walked onto the bus and ALL ignored the driver and refused to pay (apparently they do this ALL the time), well the driver yelled out to them to pay and that the bus wasn’t moving an inch until they either paid or got off.
Anyway after a few minutes I looked back from my seat and told them again what the driver said about not moving the bus (at this time the driver was on the radio to security)! Well basically they told me where to go in yelled at me in words that if mentioned would probably get me life in the ELECTRIC CHAIR haha!
I turned back around and gave them the British “two fingers up” motion when one of them yelled at me, stood up and started walking down towards me!
Not wanting to be trapped in a seat if attacked I jumped out of the seat and faced him, at which point he yelled some more and then sat back down.
The driver sat there for another few minutes before I heard them get up out of their seats (all of them) probably realising they were NOT getting a free ride!
I turned in my seat so my back was to the window in case I was blind sided and punched in the side of the head (this never happened), however as they walked past each and EVERY ONE OF THEM, screamed in my face and even started making animal like growls! (As if they didnt already look like dogs lol).
Not wanting them to get the better of them I jumped off the bus and told them all where to go (probably not thew wisest idea in retrospect lol).
One of the bigger ones turned around and said something along the lines of “Come on them lets go” and started to walk at me.
At the time I had my laptop bag slung over me so turn around and got back on the bus and took my bag off, at which point the one that approached me called me a coward out something like that. I got back off the bus as he was walking at me and he puts his fits up and started trying to get in close, I too put my arms up to protect from possible punches.
He swings at my head but hits my arms instead, tries again and misses. He then grabs me and forces me backwards and my back hits the side of the bus and I trip over (he was a very solid guy and im 6"1 and around 100 kilo myself so its no easy task lol), but in my defence I kinda fell rather than being over powered.
At this point im on the ground and he is on top of me having both fallen over, I smashed my elbow on the ground which has left a painful bruise in the area.
at this point im in an EXTREMELY vulnerable position being on my back like that, not to mention his mates weren’t far away! So I started kicking as hard as I could at him (got him in the face im pretty sure), and as he was coming back down at me having gotten up faster I lifted up my legs and forced my feet against his chest and sent him flying off me!
at this point one of his mates came down towards me but I didnt feel him hit me in any way, they then both quickly walked off.
I got up as they were jogging off through the shopping centre and yelled out that they were “Real tough with a bunch of mates to back them up” and that they were “cowards”. I continued yelled stuff as they got further away and one moderately loud said “Come up here then” (Yeah mate im thinking, coz if I whoop you in a fight your 5 other mates are totally going to stand there and not all attack me - ive got guts but im not an idiot!) at which point I got back on the bus (the driver didnt leave this whole time as he was radioing in help).
The driver said to me that its all on CCTV recording of what they just did and try not to worry.
I then go to take out my new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge I got 1 week ago to play some JWA on the bus ride home…then it hit me…my phone was GONE! I now knew what the other friend was doing when he “didnt hit me”, he was stealing my phone from my pocket!
I quickly told the driver to stop the bus they have my phone, he let me off, I ran back and checked on the floor but couldn’t find it. at this point I was feeling sick to my stomach!
I ran up to one of the shopping centre cleaners and asked her to radio on security coz they robbed me while I was on the ground without me knowing.
She pointed behind me and several large shopping centre security guards were walking towards me, and said “Did you just lose a phone?”, I said “YES I was just jumped and robbed!”.
security asked me what the pin code was to unlock it, I told him and he confirmed YES it was MY phone woot haha!
The security guards managed to whip out their phone as the gang was running and caught their faces, but it didnt matter because they were known BY NAME to the security. apparently they are always hanging around bothering people (wonderful, im around often also -_-).
Some 4 Bike police were also in the area and where called over by the security who were safely all escorting me to the police station!
Well now I just gotta wait to see what the cops do after they check the security footage.
But I always believed in Karma, you do bad and you have bad things happen to you! You do good and good things will happen.
Well get THIS! Since I missed my bus (could possibly think why haha) I decided to go to the bank and get some cash (I never carry cash, and this is a perfect example of why) and then was going to buy a movie from JBHiFi.
Well I was waiting behind tis lady at the ATM and when she was finished she walked off, when I got to the machine I noticed she had left $100 in $50 notes in the ATM, so I quickly called her back and told her she forgot her money, she then thanked me and said she got distracted putting her card away ^_^!
I kind of wish I had just ignored them, because now im kind of worried that if I see them again its going to be on for young and old, and while im not gutless I also cannot fight off 5-6 youths ON MY OWN!).
