He started to chase me

Followed

Name: Aishley
Age:
16
Location:
Church Street

“ I was in town in my school uniform, it was dark in winter and the shops had closed, I was waiting to be picked up by my mum. A man followed me through town.

I started to take strange routes to lose him but he followed me everywhere.

I went into a phone box to pretend to call home but I didn’t have any money. He waited outside.
When I didn’t know what else to do I left the phone box and ran, he started to chase me. I banged on the the window of a shop, it was called Etam at the time, on Church Street, and I was really lucky that the lady let me come in and phone my mum.”

Sexual Harassment

Name: Anon
Age: 14
Location: A tram stop opposite the Tower

“A group of men on a stag do approached me and asked me to have sex with me/ take me back to their hotel room. I told them I was a child and they said “even better”. I usually use to wear a full face of makeup, but that day I was wearing none and probably looked more like a 12 year old than a 14 year old.”
