Just had some men in a white van shout abuse at me and throw water at me and my baby as they drove passed. Not thinking quickly enough to get reg, is it worth logging with 101 or not?

Snowmagedon Tue 20-Mar-18 14:23:43

Yes I think so that's awful and could have been something dangerous they threw do it.. Stop the doing it again

Snowmagedon Tue 20-Mar-18 14:24:03

Do it now though or van will be lost!

icelolly99 Tue 20-Mar-18 14:24:36

Yes, i would! How would their behaviour ever be considered normal or ok?!

Yes do it. What did they say? How did it happen? Very scary!

InsomniacAnonymous Tue 20-Mar-18 14:27:45

That's shocking! What did they shout?

But you don't have a plate number, what could the police even do?

Keepingupwiththejonesys Tue 20-Mar-18 14:30:16

I would yes, hopefully there are cameras about where it happened. Throwing water on you and your baby sad some people?! If these people will throw water on a baby who knows what else they would do.

CoolGirlsNeverGetAngry Tue 20-Mar-18 14:31:30

Well, that’s what i’m Wondering!

They called me a prostitute, shouted stuff about my mum etc.

Yes, baby and I are both fine. Just annoyed.

The police won't be able to do much with your report as you have no reg. However, it's possible that they will do it to someone else who does get their details and they could match up the reports. I would contact 101.

GreatDuckCookery Tue 20-Mar-18 14:38:30

Bit random. Do you know who they are?

PrettyLittIeThing Tue 20-Mar-18 14:40:04

Was going to ask if you know them aswell? Unless it's mistaken identity. Tbh doubt the police will do anything I reported a man in the street who threatened to headbutt me but nothing was done.

Jayfee Tue 20-Mar-18 14:47:39

Definitely contact the police. Very scary for you.

Fekko Tue 20-Mar-18 14:48:32

Any thoughts on who they could be?

MrsAJ27 Tue 20-Mar-18 14:50:26

Disgusting twats definitely report

Snowmagedon Tue 20-Mar-18 14:56:39

Would you like anyone else to have to go through that, that's my yard stick on this sort of thing... Also risk of behaviour escalation.. As they go unchallenged.

Snowmagedon Tue 20-Mar-18 14:58:14

You may have left it too late now. Ideally with a moving vehicle it's best to call straight away with road and description.. They immediately call it in to local force who may or may not have a car near by and may or may not be busy.. But that's thier side /business /decision to make

SomeKnobend Tue 20-Mar-18 15:02:23

There may be a pattern of attacks that this is part of. Or could be a practice run and next time it'll be acid rather than water or something. I would report it.

InsomniacAnonymous Tue 20-Mar-18 15:03:14

Very upsetting thing to happen and also could be quite frightening having liquid thrown on you and/or your child thinking of the acid attacks there have been lately. What on earth could have been going on in their minds to even think of doing such a thing?

PyongyangKipperbang Tue 20-Mar-18 15:04:57

With no reg they wont be able to do much, but as a PP said, if someone else makes a report with the reg then they will have your report to corroborate what the other person said.

Also, where were you? Any chance of CCTV?

CoolGirlsNeverGetAngry Tue 20-Mar-18 15:09:36

Thanks everyone. No I don’t know them, just random wankers in a white van!
Have reported to 101 and they have taken it seriously as I was able to give them an accurate time and place. They are sending someone to talk to me. Not sure it will come to anything without a reg (I’m so annoyed) but at least I feel slightly less impotent!

InsomniacAnonymous Tue 20-Mar-18 15:14:45

I'm glad you reported it and they're taking it seriously. flowers

I got hit by a water bomb from a car, while walking down the pavement once. Shat me up. Wasn't nice.
