Firstly Happy Mothers day one and all!
I thought I better share this with you. This Friday, outside my salon, I was locking up and enjoying the beautiful Belgravia views on a fresh evening. The next thing I knew, a large 6ft 4inch tall man approached me and asked for a cigarette, I politely told him I did not have any. The next thing I knew, he lurched at me to grab my phone.
At that moment my boxing instincts kicked in, (thank goodness for my heritage in boxing) my life flashed before me. I managed to push the mugger off me, despite his superior size.
He then lurched back straight at me, biting, hitting and kicking me, I then realised I had to put into force my training to try and potentially save my life. He hit the deck. I pinned him down and luckily a pair of cabbies called the police for me, and pinned the guy down for a second time.
Happily the mugger is now in police custody and thank you to Mosimann’s for providing CCTV that shows the whole incident very clearly. A big thank you to the cabbies, all the support and love from the team at the Salon and of course my amazing wife.
Although it was very distressing and I still feel very emotional about this horrible incident, I am pleased to know this has helped make our Belgravia environment a safer place and a dangerous man is out of the publics way.
