After reading the article “Teen Stabbed to Death on London Street” (https://news.sky.com/story/1499919/teen-stabbed-to-death-on-london-street), published in Sky News on 11 June 2015, the Private Detectives at Leeds discuss the importance of being able to protect oneself in order to minimize the number of unexpected attacks.
The article published in Sky News on 11 June 2015: https://news.sky.com/story/1499919/teen-stabbed-to-death-on-london-street, reports the fatal wounding and consequent death of a sixteen-year-old boy unexpectedly stabbed on a street in North London. The report further stated that the vicious stabbing created quite a stir within law enforcement agencies, and many were trying to make concerted efforts to find the culprits as soon as possible. However, the police are still struggling to find the criminals.
The publishing of the article in Sky News incited London’s team of private detectives (privatedetective-leeds.com) to publish a guideline detailing how to ensure self-protection against unexpected attacks. The team states that the key to avoid such attacks is to exercise a significant amount of stealth and rationality, even in the heat of the moment. The reaction to such an attack must be dependent on the situation itself. Running away when the perpetrator has a gun is a very ineffective exercise. However, it may be most effective if the criminal is carrying a knife. The detectives also advise against putting up a fight. Doing so might aggravate the situation further, instigating the criminals to attack more violently. It is suggested that victims hand over whatever it is the offender asks for. Moreover, it is also possible the perpetrators are known by the target from before. It is thus suggested that all previous disputes should be immediately reported to the police so that required action can be taken as soon as possible. The team also advises people to go for martial arts training or self-defense classes to learn the art of self-protection in times of danger. Other precautions include avoiding taking anything valuable along while walking late at night on the street, taking along a partner when going out at night, especially in dark alleyways, and steering clear of areas with known high crime rates. Teenagers are requested to go with parental supervision late at night.
The chief investigator at Private Detective Leeds (privatedetective-leeds.com), Ajay Patel, identifies all the ways to regain control in times of unexpected attacks. The investigator states, “It is important to know how to protect yourself in time of attacks. Times are tough and you need a lot of protection regardless of your age, gender and size. We are always suggesting newer ways for self-protection because security inevitably comes from within. There is only so much the police can do when you are trapped somewhere and there’s no one around to help. However, we are here to help you feel secure. We believe that certain steps can offer the required protection against such criminals.” Detective Patel can be contacted through the company’s phone number (0113 335 0772).
