The EastEnders actress told of the attack which happened to her daughter Tallulah Lilac Morgan who she shares with her policeman ex Dave Morgan
EastEnders ‘ star Jessie Wallace has revealed that her teenage daughter was the victim of a gang mugging.
The actress, 47, opened up about the incident in response to a Twitter user who had complained that his own daughter had been attacked inside a gated block of “luxury flats”.
Jessie said that her 14-year-old daughter Tallulah Lilac Morgan, who she shares with her policeman ex Dave Morgan, was mugged in Muswell Hill last year – the same area where a teenager was stabbed on a bus yesterday .
The soap star claims to have reported it to the police but she said “nothing was ever resolved”.
A man by the name of Tony Grounds wrote: “Teenage daughter mugged by gang, dials 999. @metpoliceUK will investigate. We hear nothing. Ring 101. Rec message.
“Find out names of gang. Send to police… nothing. Police station closed/luxury flats. Not seen a real life policeman for years. Gang continue…what happens next?”
He angrily continued: “Apparently if you want to see a policeman you go to Planet Organic on a Thursday between 6-7pm. I wish I was making this up @theresa_may… I wish you would come and reassure my daughter as the gang stole her passport and have her address. Also reported. Nothing frm @metpoliceuk”
Seeing the tweet, Jessie shared it and added: “This happened last year in Muswell Hill to my daughter. I call the police at 8pm and they knock on my door at 3am. Nothing was ever resolved.”
The news comes as a 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a 19-year-old man was stabbed in the chest on a north London bus in Muswell Hill yesterday.
The victim remains in a critical condition in an east London hospital after being flown from the scene at around 5pm on Saturday.
The arrested teenager is currently in an east London police station and is set to be quizzed by officers about the knifing, Scotland Yard said in a statement.
A friend of the stabbed teen said she rushed to the scene when she heard about the knife attack.
The latest knife attack in the capital comes amid increasing pressure on the government to do more about a rise in violent crime.
Police have called for a reverse in the cuts to the number of officers under austerity measures, but Chancellor Philip Hammond on Thursday told forces to refocus their existing resources.
Theresa May has claimed there is no correlation between falling police numbers and an increase in knife crime.
