I’m going to break this down so people find it easier to follow. This was around 3:20, I’m sitting in a police van after a little incident near Berwick Street, London
I decided to pop into a cafe and grab something to drink when I took a glance to the side at a man smiling at me
I got bad vibes but didn’t think about it until he stood right behind me and started humming words like ‘so beautiful… so lovely…’ Having had drunk/cheeky men often say things like these when out at night I chose to brush it off and waited my turn
He then began to touch my hair. I turned around and told him to move back. Responded with nothing but a smile, stayed exactly where he was
I placed my order, took it, when his turn came he didn’t order nothing. The employee asked him if he was going to buy anything, and all he said was 'I love you’. I’ve never met this bloke in my life
I didn’t leave the cafe. Took a seat next to two women in the hopes that he would give up and just piss off. He came and sat right next to me, it was the most uncomfortable feeling
Once the women noticed, they asked me if we were together. I said no and one of them demanded he leave, the manager was called out and she threatened to phone the police if he didn’t.
'I won’t go until she goes’.
This was happening all while he was merely inches away from me. Even after the police were called he chose to stay. I was invited to sit closer to the women and as we made idle chat we could hear his breathing get heavy. I was on edge the entire time fearing he would get aggressive and attack someone. This went on for about forty minutes, he finally got up but before leaving, told us he’d follow me
One of the women ran out to see where he was going, he was wandering around the market the whole time we were inside and was gone when a siren was heard
I had to be escorted back to the station by two policemen. Apparently this is not the first time such a case is reported, it’s very common there but very rarely during the day when it’s safer. If you’re by yourself or planning to visit London stay away from the Soho area entirely. Full of drug dealers and hidden sex shops down alleyways that have had past cases of traffickers, one of the police escorts told me. It’s fucking disgusting.
I left a great pair of shades in a cafe on Berwick Street in London a few years ago. I’d go back and get them. There were LA Eyeworks shades and had the date of their production on them: 1982. A keen indicator of the ageing process, it reminded me I was working with people younger than my shades. I’ve got belts older than the actors I’m working with now.
