A near mugging

My life long friend and I had just been dropped by his mum, in the middle of Harrow. My friend is tall and very sporty and always ready for fun and action. As friends do we were talking and having fun. We entered a very busy fast–food restaurant and went to the counter to order our food.

        As we received our order, my friend saw a rather nasty looking gang enter but he just ignored them. We were given our food and sat down at the nearest table. Luckily the table was right next to the door.

It was to our good fortune that a really smart looking kid, wearing all the latest labelled sports wear, passed by carrying a McDonald’s milkshake in his hands.

She decided to call the police to whom we recounted the whole experience.

The police said that they had heard of this gang before and that they would contact us when and if they had any news. Needless to say we never heard anything again.
