Harassment: lots of love and kisses from your stalker and soon to be rapist

Published

on

Police have released a number of samples of handwriting in hope you can help find a stalker who has been targeting a woman for years.

Claiming he is named Gordon a ‘Stalker’ and soon to be ‘Rapist’ who will see her soon.

A woman in her 40s contacted police in January 2016 about cards she’d been receiving from a person called ‘Gordon’.

The cards have been sent over six years, but they’ve become more graphic and threatening in nature over the past two years and include threats to commit rape

The offences have all happened in Bristol and we believe the offender is sending the cards from somewhere within the Bristol postmark area.

The cards are:

• Usually signed ‘Gordon’ and always with five crosses (one large X and four small Xs around it)

• Always written in capitals

• Often have an animal pictured on the front, regularly cats

• Sent from the Bristol postmark area

Lead officer DC Patrick Prescott said: “We’re releasing extracts of the offender’s handwriting and signature as we believe someone will recognise the style and know who the sender is.

“Do you recognise this handwriting, the name Gordon or the signature with the five crosses? Do you know who may be sending these cards?

“If you work in a shop which sells cards, or if you work in the postal service, do you recognise the handwriting or the distinctive pattern of crosses?

“The content is becoming increasingly sexually explicit and aggressive in nature and includes threats to commit rape and stalking offences.

“We’ve been working with a criminal profiler at the National Crime Agency to examine and risk-assess the offender’s behaviour and are continuing to progress numerous lines of enquiry.

“Thorough analysis of the communications has been carried out and the possibility the offender has sent, or is sending cards or letters with similar content to other people cannot be excluded. If you have been receiving similar correspondence then we want to hear from you.

“You may recognise one or more of the characteristics but can’t believe the person you have in mind would commit offences like this. It could be a colleague, friend or even a family member. We’d ask you to please report any concerns or suspicions to help us make this stop.

“Harassment offences can cause significant distress to victims and disrupt their daily lives but we’ll do all we can to make sure we investigate crimes, gather evidence and whenever possible, bring offenders to justice.”

The woman who’s been receiving the cards said: “This has been going on for so long – someone out there must know who it is.

“Whether it’s the distinctive crosses, the handwriting or the name they call themselves, if you recognise anything that could help the police, please let them know.”

If you can help, please call Investigations on 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5216008248.

You can also call the Independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They never ask for your name or trace your call. You can also give information 100 per cent anonymously online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
