He started to chase me


Name: Aishley
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.”
