Terrible, I have just seen that. So frightening for her.

Thankfully the kids weren’t with her but she is traumatised. Two men on motorcycles posing as policeman pulled her over, attacked her and stole her wedding and engagement rings.

This happens all over, not just Portugal. It’s just so easy for these thugs/criminals to carry out this kind of attack. She looks really visibly shaken as you’d expect. Hope she is ok and they catch these barbaric thugs.

This is terrible. It is also why it’s not wise to flaunt what you have .. I would imagine this was a targeted attack.
I live in a decent area , but people consider what car they have on the basis they don’t want it stolen.
Unfortunately there are people out there who don’t want to earn they just take.
Good Carolyn’s children weren’t present.
Hope Carolyn’s ok

Definitely a targeted attack. And while the last thing I’m doing is victim shaming, if you make yourself a target, unfortunately you’re going to attract the attention of criminals.

I hope she’s OK.

It does happen quite a lot. My ex wife!s step dad drove coaches on overseas trips. He got rolled by a gang in Paris while the people were at the Eiffel Tower. They took his wedding ring. He told me that he was chuffed in a way as he’d been trying to get it off his finger for over ten years but it was stuck.

Whilst I don't think that either of you are intending to blame the victim, how is what you're both saying any different to saying a rape victim got raped because she was wearing a short skirt?

I hope that Carolyn isn't too shaken and hopefully the suspects get caught before it happens again.

This is exactly why Ive got a knackered Van, Cant keep a car in the gated carpark so have to leave it on the street so im not risking anything nice around here where I live.

Few footballers down the road always being burgled and having their garages broken into.

The deansgate towers in Manchester have a very wealthy community and there's a massive problem with people being followed into the carparks and having there Bentley stolen

I hope she's ok though, very scary thing to go through.

Oh do be brief eh. It’s a million miles from what you compared it to. What a sick comparison.

So does the Nottingham Post. I would thought this is standard for newspapers / when reporting on allegations made...

"Mansfield Town CEO Carolyn Radford has issued an emotional plea on Instagram alleging she was 'attacked' by armed robbers 'dressed as police officers' in Portugal."

It is a pretty sad state of affairs if you think this way.

Maybe between the both of you, you could create a rule book for how a law abiding citizen should behave :-o :-o
