There was a Safer Neighbourhood Panel meeting last Thursday whereby the police gave an update to various incidents within Greenwich West Ward as follows:

Saturday 25th August - Stabbing at 23:42
Police were called to a report of a man found unresponsive in Creek Road Junction with Deptford Church Street, SE8. Officers and the Ambulance Service attended and established that the male had suffered stab injuries. He was sadly pronounced dead at 00:40hrs on Sunday 26th August.

The victim has now been identified as Shevaun Sorrell, 22 from Deptford. A post-mortem took place on 29th August and gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the chest.

The Homicide and Major Crime Command are leading the investigation. Dana Powell, 27, of Deptford, was charged on the evening of Wednesday, 5 September and was appearing before the magistrates court last Thursday 6 September.

Saturday 2nd June 2018 - Stabbing
Stabbing at Claremount Street. This case is closed as victim unwilling to cooperate.

Within the Triangle, unfortunately car crime is still high, especially the theft of bicyles and mopeds. Also theft from cars continues. Recently a set of golf clubs were stolen from a car in Ashburnham Grove. I can only reitterate the importance of not leaving ANYTHING of value in your car at ANYTIME.

Signal-blocking pouche

Keyless car crime is also on the rise. Thieves tend to scout an area looking for high tech vehicles. Remember to keep your key fob away from doors or windows to minimise the chances of a thief to find and amplify the car key's signal. To block signals keep your keys in a metal tin or consider purchasing a Faraday signal-blocking pouch.

There were 6 reported incidents of burglary within the Triangle from July to September. Many of these burglaries were due to windows being left open in the hot weather.

Date for your diary

Saturday 6th October will be the next Ashburnham Triangle Police Street Meet between 3pm-4pm. Drop by anytime to meet PCSO Henry Lawton to discuss any issues or concerns. The drop-in will take place in Ashburnham Retreat/Play Street, next to the Ashuburham Arms.
