What has happened to modern society?
11:12am Tuesday 23rd October 2012 in Letters
ON Saturday evening my husband and I were going to bed when we heard shouting, this is very unusual as we live in a very quiet cul-de-sac.
I looked out the window, a man was screaming and bellowing at a young girl, my husband was concerned she was in danger so went out to check she was okay.
On his appearance the young man charged at my husband and carried out a brutal attack, only stopping when I had dragged him off several times.
We are in our 50s. It was horrible, I thought he was going to kill my husband.
But the worst of all this is no one helped.
I'm not asking for someone to come out and physically help, but maybe if someone had shouted "go away - I've called the police" even from a window it might have stopped him.
We have lived quietly in this road for 16 years, working and bringing up a family - and yet no one helped.
My young child watched this event unfold in front of her and she called the police.
One neighbour has given a statement and, whoever you are, I thank you as this has helped bring justice.
As for the rest, shame on you. I hope you or a member of your family never relies on neighbours for help.
All my husband did was check a young girl was okay, thank god she was.
