A policewoman broke down in tears after she found a pig’s head on her car’s windscreen.
24-year-old Laura, a British Transport Police officer, left for her shift at work at 5 am when she discovered the pig’s head. She said that the incident made her feel ‘violated.’
In an interview with The Sun, her father, Paul, said: “She was just sobbing. As a dad I’m just absolutely raging. Laura’s only 5ft tall, there’s nothing of her, this is the job she has always wanted to do since she was a child.
“What these fellas have done… to come round her home and put that on her car, she feels really violated. It’s very sinister. She doesn’t feel safe now in her own home.
“These guys may think this is a prank, but this is her house and she’s off duty and she’s just beyond herself on this. I feel like they’re threatening my daughter.”
Paul continued: “These guys shouldn’t have even been out the house anyway because of the lockdown.
“She’s now worried that she’s got to get rid of her car because it’s been targeted. She relies on it to get to work. She’s now got all this stress on top of the job she’s doing.
“I’m at my wits end on this. Particularly at this time as well. Society needs to understand that it’s a bad enough job they’re doing when they’re in uniform, but to be targeted off-duty, at night, in your own home, it’s just disgusting.”
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called at 06.12hrs on Thursday, 2 April to a residential address in Hackbridge with reports that a pig’s head had been left on a woman’s car.
“Shortly afterwards at approximately 09:23hrs, a 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of a section s.4A public order offence (intentionally causing harassment, alarm or distress). He is currently in custody at a South London police station. Enquiries are ongoing into the motive and circumstances of the incident.
“The victim has been spoken to and will be supported as the investigation continues.”
