Attitude's very own Dr. Ranj Singh is urging people to "look out for each other" after he was robbed on his way home from a night out in Soho.

Posting a screenshot of an iPhone note titled " A little word of warning" on his Instagram yesterday (Wednesday 9 February) Ranj shared what happened. 

"I had the BEST night last night," he opens, presumably referring to Tuesday night.

"Look out for each other peeps"

He continues, "Sadly, on my way home from Soho when I was walking to get a taxi, I was approached by a man who robbed me. It all happened so quickly and luckily I wasn't hurt at all (the git stole my
watch though), but it could have been so much worse.

"I foolishly chased after him, but he got away. I now know that's not a good idea as sometimes these people will lead you into a trap," the former Attitude cover star and Attitude Award winner goes on to say.

"I wasn't going to say anything because I felt stupid and a bit embarrassed, but after speaking to some friends I thought it might just serve as a reminder: please be careful when coming home at night - even in spaces you think are safe.

"Look out for each other peeps x," he finishes.

According to the Metropolitan Police, there were 22,710 robbery offences recorded across London between January and December 2021. In the borough of Westminster, there were 2,223 robberies and 21,605 thefts. in the same time period
