A young woman has taken to social media to share her terrifying experience after stopping her car to take two wheelie bins off the road, only to have “people running up to her from an alleyway.”
The incident took place in the early hours of Peckham, south London, in what she described as a “tactic of getting people out of their cars for god knows what reason”.
Izzy Boyle, 22, posted the warning video to TikTok explaining how she got out of her vehicle to clear the roadblock. The sun reports.
The footage shows a blue trash can blocking the road as she brings her car to a stop.
In the video, Izzy said: “I was driving through Peckham at about 2am last night and I think everyone should be aware of this, especially women.
“I ran into there was an island in the middle of the road and there was a bin on either side of it so no cars could go through either lane.
She added: “I thought this was just a joke, so I got out to move the bin. As soon as I got out I heard a rustle and I looked around and people came from a side street.
“I jump back in my car and I thought oh my god this is basically a tactic to get people out of their cars for god knows what reason, but whatever it is, it’s not a good reason.”
Izzy concluded, “I just want everyone to know if you see a trash can on the road or whatever, turn around, push your car against it and don’t get out.”
The disturbing video has garnered a lot of attention online, especially among female viewers.
Commenting on the clip, one woman said, “Adding this to the list of things to be afraid of being a woman. I’m sick of it.’
Another added: ‘Was in Croydon and this happened. Drove through it. Thanks for letting people know.’
A third said sarcastically, “It’s okay because we can always swing a bus down.”
