And Hello, and welcome to today's Crimewatch Roadshow. We're live,
and this is our third week on air, asking for your help to tackle
unsolved crimes. On the programme today: when the hero who ended up
in hospital, after he confronted a shoplifter.
Police need to track down the people who beat him up.
Wiltshire Police are clamping down on drugs, and we are in the thick
of the action, as they make sure nothing is left to chance.
And, police need to track down a man who pretended to be a stranger
in need, before stealing from the Good Samaritans who agreed to help
him out. For Our roadshow team are
travelling the country, investigating crime where you are.
Yesterday, we were in Salisbury. Today, we're still in Wiltshire.
Where exactly are you, Dave? Hi, Rav. We're in Devizes, at
Wiltshire Police's headquarters. Also the home of the Wiltshire
Police helicopter. A few moments ago, it was called off to a genuine
emergency, off she went. We are hoping she will return by the end
of the programme. We have here, at a very brave dog, because she saved
the life of her handler when they were faced by a nice man. Find out
how she did it later. And BBC Points West's Alex Lovell joins us
again today. Thanks, Dave. Today, I'll be with
Swindon's Drug Enforcement Team. They're carrying out raids, in
their bid to put a stop to the activities of dealers who have
moved in to the area. Thanks, Alex. Time for our first
appeal today. Police need your help to find a prolific con man who's
wanted by police forces in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern
Ireland. He preys on people's goodwill, before disappearing with
their money. We have featured him on Crimewatch Roadshow last year.
But, despite our appeals, he still hasn't been caught. And victims are
still coming forward. Robert Kerr is wanted by 12 different police
forces across the country in direction with Curtly -- 30 cases
of burglary and fraud. Police believe he is a conman who has been
preying on Good Samaritans. Last year, we appealed for information
on Robert Kerr. A priest from North Yorkshire had been conned out of
�1,000. He said Robert Kerr promised the money would be
returned by career. For three years, the Korea never came. We also
featured a couple from Gloucester who want to remain anonymous. They
say they were duped by Robert Kerr. We thought we were doing a favour
for another Christian. They say it began when they offered to pay for
his train fare, but the deception spiralled until the couple had
handed over �460 for hotels and taxis. He disappeared with the
money, and never returned. I was very cross when we realised what
had happened and we had been taken in. Part of my role is to
investigate all forms of distraction burglary, where people
have been scammed within their own homes. The suspect it is playing on
people's faith. And their good will. And it does upset me. They were not
the only people to be targeted by the trickster with an agenda. The
appeals on Crimewatch Roadshow did not track down this slippery
character but they did prompt more victims to come forward. If look,
that Irish gentleman, who took the money. Christine and Terry had been
watching from the B&B they run in Warminster, and they recognised him.
It is him, give them a call. We saw it a year ago, it was death
and mayhem. I picked up the phone and spoke to one of the police
officers. Christine and Terry say they were visited in 2009 by the
man they had seen on the appeal. Robert Kerr. At the time, Christine
was home alone at their B&B when the doorbell rang. Hello. The man
at the door was very friendly and said he knew Christine's mother in
law. He called himself John, and asked if they had a room where he
could stay. He said he had been released from Salisbury District
Hospital. He had a red band on his wrist. What is your wrist band?
have been in hospital four days in Salisbury. He was really convincing.
This is my husband Terry. I could chat to him quite easily, but there
was something about him are wasn't sure. After convincing the couple
of his story, all seemed fine until the next morning when Terry went to
a hospital appointment at leaving Christine alone. I was washing up
in the kitchen. I need some money! He came in so quickly it took me by
surprise. He needed some money. He said he needed to go to Bristol
Airport. I went into the lounge to get some money. He stood so close
to me. I felt really threatened. I handed over the money. Then he said,
I want some more money. I handed more money to him to get him out,
because I felt really threatened. He wanted extra money to buy his
granddaughter's something for Christmas. In total, Christine
handed over �300. When I came back from hospital, my wife told me. She
was in quite an upset state. I said to her, calm down. You can replace
money but you can't replace a person. If he is watching or
anybody knows where he is, give yourself in, or phone the police.
Get him caught. He could do this, and he could do something really
drastic to older people. It is believed that is exactly what he
has done. Since we made that film, the
reverend alan neil has passed away. His death had nothing to do with
the case. Alan car meanwhile remains at large. Later, we'll be
finding out how Robert Kerr took hundreds of pounds from an 89-year-
old widow. Rav, back to you. Thanks, Dave.
Now, time to have a look at today's Wanted Faces.
Nine years ago today, this man, Peter Evered, was found guilty of
rape and indecent assault, but went on the run before he could be
sentenced. Detectives believe the 58 year old may now be using a new
name. At the time of his disappearance, he had long hair and
a beard, but his appearance may have changed. He's known to have
connections to the Maidenhead, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire
areas. Come on, let's put him back before the courts.
Our next Wanted Face, Flamur Hasa, is also commonly known as Muli, and
apparently introduces himself as Barney the Greek. Detectives in the
West Mercia force want to speak to him in connection with wounding
with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. He's originally from
Albania, but now has connections to the West Midlands and Telford areas.
Have you seen him recently? Next up is this man, Stephen Wesley
Blake. In September last year, he was sentenced in his absence to
eight years in prison, for possession of a shotgun, four years
for harassment, and one year for cultivating cannabis, with the
sentences to run concurrently. He's known to have connections to the
Redditch and Warwickshire areas, and has a Chinese symbol tattooed
on the left side of his neck, and his date of birth tattooed on the
right side. He also has a tattoo, with the name "Joanne", on the
inside of his left arm. Tell us if you know where he is.
Last up for today is Andrew Roper. He failed to appear before Preston
Crown Court back in April 2002, on a charge of rape, and a warrant was
issued for his arrest. He's known to have connections to the
Lancashire area and also to Gillingham in Kent.
If you recognise any of these Wanted Faces, then please give us a
call. Our number is 08000 468 999. Or you can text us on 63399. Text
CW, space, and then your message. And that space is really important,

course, you can e-mail us too. The address: [email protected] Now, over
to Alex in Devizes. The impact illegal drugs have on
society is huge. Figures suggest that over half of all theft which
happens in the UK is drug-related. Wiltshire Police are cracking down
on those supplying drugs. I went out with officers in Swindon, who
are our front line defence against this menace.
An all come to Operation Atlantic. This is the background, on its drug
use and violence in the county. Here, in Sweden -- Swindon,
briefing the team about today's raid. This is all about locking up
the people who cause most harm to us. As police officers prepare, I
joined the leaders as they give a brief on the low-down on what is
about to happen at one of the addresses to be raided today.
When we get there, they will move swiftly, break the door down.
Anyone inside will be put down as quickly as possible on to the
ground so it makes it is safe environment for the police officers
to start searching. They're looking for anything related to Class A
drugs. Police say canals are coming into
the county from Bristol and London, defending vulnerable people, using
their homes to deal drugs. They take their positions surrounding
the target property before using Police! Empty, but I'm told it is
often because dealers keep their own homes separate from the address
they used to deal drugs. Nobody is here. That doesn't mean there are
no drugs here which is why we are searching the premises. They could
come back at any point. It is a small flat. The police officers
have had a look around, there's nobody here. They have happened --
they have found Scales, and individual bags. The search is only
just beginning. Something we will have to seize
here, as you can see, it is a lot of white powder way you can hide
quite a bit in there. That will be coming with us for testing. Three
individual cellophane wraps, four. The way this is normally wrapped up,
it is in a tight bundle like that. And it is sold like that?
Apparently so. Good evidence for us. Kenya get fingerprints from that?
Yes? We will take that. -- can you get fingerprints. It is not just
drugs the team are looking for. That was in the kitchen, right next
to the weighing scales. They may use it to cut up as well. Then, the
police find something of interest. Cannabis. Tucked away in the top
kitchen drawer. The female logo, is that relevant? It can be to
particular people who deal with it. Their common logo. So others will
know what grade it is. Whether these sources a reliable one.
Criminals work hard to stay one step ahead, so sometimes it is a
challenge for the police to keep tabs on their movements. The issues
we have, if they have moved on, we try to get intelligence. This time,
we have got links to what we believe his drug dealing.
dealing is going on, money will be changing hands. This is to test if
the money is real. At the end of the day, they don't even trust
themselves. They bring in one last member of the team to help to
complete the search. A one year-old sniffer dog, with an acute sense of
smell to make sure every last This makes me think that something
has been stolen. And the residual smell would have been there. Then,
calling on the police walkie-talkie. The main suspect has turned up
outside. Based on previous intelligence combined with today's
findings, the man is detained. He is later arrested in connection
with the supply of Class A drugs. The that was a very positive
warrant and we have want under arrest for Class A drugs and we
have a lot of intelligence and we have a robust message to send out
to the people about drugs in Swindon. An update on that film...
The man has been released on police bail until the end of the month.
Sergeant Scott Hargreave is one of the officers who was out on the
raid. This was all part of Operation Atlantic. A large number
of properties were targetted. the end, the result give us �23,000
worth of Class A and Class B drugs, stolen property, laptops and
jewellery and it resulted in 26 arrests. You feel that you remove
one person at from the drugs ring and somebody else might move in.
Does this really make a difference? To it does. Previous experience has
shown that if we police this robustly, it cuts down on
reoffending and if we cut off at the supply, the addicts that are
committing the crimes will seek help elsewhere through self-help
groups for their doctor. It is ongoing. We have some of the things
that you use. This is a battering ram. The Red Key! As you can see,
it is very heavy. How justified is it to we used in the sun somebody's
front door? Fairly justified. �35 allows us to get into any property
fairly easily. To ensure that people do not get rid of their
drugs. The essence is surprise. And at the door opens outwards? Yes,
this is a hooligan bar. It is multi-purpose, for padlocks, four
doors that open outwards or inwards and we can also clear glass from
windows and doorways. I am glad you have got it because it is a very
menacing piece of equipment. Back to the studio... Thank you. Still
to come... Police want your help to catch the people who attacked a man
after he confronted a shoplifter. He might have been doing the right
thing, but they were certainly in the wrong. A web of deceit. How a
con man persuaded an 89 year-old woman to handover the money she had
saved to pay her bills. Police need your help to stop him. And this
woman is bravely speaking out to appeal for your help to catch the
man who attacked her as she walked home after a night out. But first,
time to look at some everyday crime conveniently caught on CCTV.
Wandsworth last November. Two men come into this telephone shop and
they are closely followed by another pair. They look at the
phones and start grabbing at the displays. 10 phones worth more than
�4,000 are stolen or damaged. The shop assistant attempts to stop
them as they leave but they all manage to pull out of the door.
Police would like to talk to all these men. If you know them, give
us a call. Next, a private home in water nouvelle in Hampshire. March,
this year, and two men skill the gates to get into the driveway. You
can see them on the left. Once in, they start smashing the windows of
the two cars in the driveway. Listen to the rack at their making.
This has happened before. And the family have put up a �1,000 reward
for information leading to a conviction. If you know who they
are, call us. March this year between 1:30am and 2:00am and this
Chancellor has broken into a bureau de change in central London. We are
actually inside. There is a lot of debris flying around because he is
making a right mess of getting inside. He was this? The Save
beggar has a friend who is ripping out the alarm system. These guys
are not in a hurry. They are in for more than four hours but still fail
to get into the safe. They leave but the damage is substantial.
Police need names. If you know who they are, you know who to call. And
if you've seen anyone or anything you recognise in those clips, do
get in touch. We need your help in finding the thugs who but a man in
hospital. This happened in the town of Melksham. A young man spoted
someone shoplifting, but when he challenged them, he was in for a
shock. I thought they were literally going to beat me to death.
If they're going to beat me up over ice-cream, you know they welcome
back for you, just for the hill of it. Are you saying I took
something? It was a cowardly attack. Five people stood around one person,
a totally innocent member of the public he was only trying to do the
right thing. On 15th May, 20 year- old Christopher Robinson went to
his local Blockbuster DVDs to work to collect a film and also made his
friend, who works there. It was at 8:30pm and I agreed that ended get
an DVD. I grab the DVD and went straight to the tell. It looked
quite busy. A as Christopher chatted, he noticed a group of
young people they were acting suspiciously. It was mainly their
body language that give it away. It was a mix of their face and their
body language which bought the whole suspicious this on, really.
There was a lady with black hair who put her back to me and she
blocked me and was almost touching me. I looked around. Another woman
reached into the fridge and took a tub of ice-cream and slipped it
into her bag. They all grouped together and headed for the exit
and because I saw this happening, I do not know what it was, it was
literally like, if I did not do anything, so selling over one ice-
cream, but that was my impulse. Acting on that in polls would have
dramatic consequences. It was immediately outside, so the exit
door is opened and the female lays carrying the ice-cream and the
victim approach has a female writer outside the store. In the High
Street. For some reason I just shouted as they were walking. And
she acknowledged but ignored me so I jumped over to her. I said, give
back what you have stolen and I put my hand out. She turned around and
said I didn't steal anything but I opened her handbag and she gave me
back which you still. That was quite odd. I went to head back when
the three guys heard what was going on. And they began to approach may
and they got quite close. Too close for comfort. They came on very
aggressively. He said, he is dealing? A dusty and nothing!
pointing out that lady. Who is stealing? At that point, he give me
three blows to the face. I staggered backwards. He punched me
again. Chris was dazed and confused and walked back to the shop, were
his friend was working. He said, oh my God! When his mother found out
about the attack, he was already in hospital. It was the early hours of
the morning and I received a text message from Christopher's friend.
I was shocked, what on earth had happened? I immediately went to the
accident and emergency and Christopher was waiting to be seen
by a doctor. Christopher sustained serious injuries, his I was heavily
bruised and swollen and he also received cuts to his mouth and face.
It is principle. People have strong principles and the theft occurs in
front of them, when they are just about to pay for their own goods
and they see somebody stealing, they think that isn't right so
approaching those men, that was based on his own morals and
principles. A brave thing to do. They committed to crimes on Monday.
Over one ice-cream, that is nothing. A vicious attack and over some ice-
cream. Andy Peach is the arresting officer. The best of motives, there.
But he paid a terrible price? was a brave act. A spirited member
of the community and he has gone to prevent this theft and he has been
viciously attacked. He was very brave but the best thing was to not
get involved and reported to police? We would advise the public
not to get involved and not tackle criminals. The report it and rain a
999. Let's look at this kind, they have to be caught. Three Asian
males, the main aggressor, the man who punched Christopher, he was 6
ft tall and have a slim build and wearing a pink short-sleeved shirt.
He is described as having a local accent. And the girl who stole the
as can? White Female, 20 years old, blonde hair piled on her head, she
looked -- it looked like a pineapple. And the other man, dark
hair, slim build. You need people to come forward and give you help.
It was market place in action. Very busy? The I appeal to the community
to come forward and help us catch this individual and a spring him to
justice. Thank you very much indeed. The number is on the screen. You
know what to do. That was a very nasty attack. If you think you know
anything about that, contact us. The numbers are on your screen now.
Or you can also ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Earlier in the programme we appealed for information about a
con man who has appeared on Crimewatch Roadshow before but who
has still not been caught, even though he is wanted by 13 police
forces across the country, including Avon and Somerset.
They've asked us to appeal for information after Robert Kerr
deceived an 89-year-old widow in order to get his hands on her money.
Robert Kerr is a prolific conman. 89 year-old Doris was about to
become his latest victim. I would doubt anybody, now. Generally, I am
not afraid. It started around the corner from her house when Robert
Kerr born into her friend. stopped me and asked me if I knew
were the Roman Catholic Church was. He was organising the funeral and
wanted to look at it. While he was telling me those things that I did
not believe, he was very persuasive. A Ron suggested that he should
stick two daughters. He knew she was active at her local church. He
thought she might be able to help. -- he should speak to Doris. He
then turned up at her house. This man came to the door and said, a
friend had died and he wanted to do the funeral. He wanted to do it in
the church. And I said, I am very sorry but you would have to going
to Clevedon, Corpus Christie, and ask the people there. We did it
have funerals here. He claimed his car had broken down and he did not
know what to do. Corus believe 10 and as a Good Samaritan, she
invited him in. I thought he was a priest. I really did. I said to him,
I was see if I can give you something. I think maybe I can help
you. But this is my heating money. He has no qualms about playing on
the elderly. And people have faith within the Church. He is using
those factors for his own games. can only give you �200. That would
probably be enough. He said he would be back with the money at 5pm.
I am aware that Taurus is heavily involved in the church and because
of their good nature and how plausible history was, Doris then
given �200 cash from her winter heating allowance. Having promised
to come back, he walked out of the house with the money that Dora's
had set aside to pay for heating through the winter. Ron had second
thoughts about handing over her address. Worried, he went to check
on her. By the time I got there he had been and gone. We sat there,
twiddling our fingers, for two hours. At 7pm we decided that he
was not coming. Deplorable, really. I cannot understand how anybody
could go around calling people out of their livelihood. He if anybody
has any information on what this particular individual is living or
staying at the moment, please call. We don't want to miss the
opportunity to catch him. It has been a long time, or one year and
it is time he was brought to DI Mark Wolfe is with me now, from
Avon and Somerset Police, which is overseeing the investigation for
all 12 forces across the country who want to talk to Robert Kerr.
How similar are all the cases? is a confidence trickster, he uses
a down on his luck type of story to get money out of people for public
transport. Accommodation. Usually, he will focus on churches, the
Royal British Legion, he is an ex soldier. He comes across with a
plausible story. He is going for a similar type of
victim, have any been connected? None at all.
He has been on the run, why haven't you found him? He has none of the
normal references, no bank account, passport, driving licence. He lives
a transient lifestyle. Used as public transport, stays in B and Bs.
We are keen to locate him. Does he use different names? He does use
the name of Andrew Johnson. The best way of identifying him, he has
his nickname on his right wrist, Skeeby. -- Scooby.
It can be difficult to turn somebody away who has a hard luck
stories. Do check people out, ask for identification, get someone
else involved. Ring the police, that is what we are here for.
If you can help track Rober Kerr down, ring us now. Thanks, Mark.
Now, the fact that just about everyone now has a phone that can
take pictures or films has changed the way police can gather evidence.
And the Metropolitan Police hope you might be able to solve a
vicious attack that someone out there caught on camera. Detective
Constable George Allan is investigating this incident. This
attack happened in Piccadilly Circus in central London. This
happened earlier this year, on Friday 17th February.
It was around 9.45pm. The victim, who is a Hungarian national, was
visiting family in the UK. He was sat on the steps of the Eros statue
watching the street entertainers, when a dispute between himself and
the suspects started. The argument escalates to something pretty
drastic. The man is attacked by a group of unidentified males. It's
pretty nasty, let's take a look. So what's happening here? The man is
being chased, and the suspects trip him up. They proceed to beat him up,
quite viciously. A brutal attack. Now they've finished attacking him,
and the victim tries to get up, but he collapses from his injuries.
That's just terrible. They even hit him over the head with a vodka
bottle. This guy was left with some really bad injuries. He had a
dislocated left hip, a fractured pelvis, a bleed to the brain, and
numerous cuts and bruises. He's still receiving medical treatment
now. This is a really serious incident. You'd really like to
catch these people. But with the CCTV, it's hard to recognise the
people attacking. But you hope there's another piece of evidence
out there that might be able to help you. We believe there could be
more evidence out there on mobile phones. There were a lot of people
around when this incident was happening. So we're keen to speak
to anyone who witnessed this. In particular, there is a male wearing
a body warmer who can be seen videoing the incident using his
mobile phone. We think this person might really be able to help us.
This is in the busiest part of London, 9:45pm. It's understandable
if onlookers don't want to get stuck in if there's an attack going
on. But if you happen to catch something like this on camera, it
can really help the police. We believe other people may have
filmed this incident. Evidence taken at the scene by an onlooker
can really aid an investigation. It can help us to identify suspects,
or even provides evidence of the incident taking place. If someone
came to you, or any police force, I imagine they could remain anonymous
if they wanted to? We're always grateful for the public's help with
investigations. But they don't have to be named. And it can make a real
difference. Let's hope they can make a difference with this case.
Thanks, George. Were you in Piccadilly Circus on
the night of this attack, or were you even the person filming it? You
could help put these thugs behind bars. Please get in touch. Alex.
Thanks, Rav. We're appealing for your help on a very serious crime.
A young woman, who was raped as she returned from a night out in
Swindon, has been brave enough to speak out, as she wants the man who
did this to be caught. We are not identifying the woman, and her
words are spoken by an actor. Before we talk to the officer in
charge, let's hear from the victim what happened.
IRA was with the same friends I'd go up with. We were having fun,
drinking. Dancing, having a laugh. I walked home on my own. Everything
was normal. I got halfway. I was grabbed from behind. Terrifying.
Detective Constable Gemma Vinton is investigating the case. This is a
very serious incident, and you want to talk to anyone who may have
witnessed anything on that night, Thursday May 3rd, or the early
hours of Friday May 4th. She had been out in the Kasbah nightclub
until the early hours of Thursday May 4th. She left at 2am, and
started walking home. If anybody saw anything that might
be relevant, they need to contact you. Where did it happen? You can
just hear the helicopter coming back. She walked down Regents
Street, past the kebab shop. After that she walked up Eastcott Hill
towards Old Town in Swindon. Half way up Eastcott Hill, she cut down
an alleyway as a shortcut. As she entered the alleyway, she was
grabbed from behind, violently thrown to the floor, and raped. Do
we have any description of the man for anyone out there that may
recognise him? The victim has been able to give us a description. He
was a white man in his early twenties, and was wearing a hoody.
His face was covered by the hood. And the victim could only see his
chin, which identified him as white. Crimes of this nature are very rare.
But do take precautions, let somebody know when you're coming
home. Try not to be alone. Keep your mobile phone with you.
This attack has had a devastating effect on this young woman, and on
her family. She won't go out alone now. She told us how it's affected
her. IRA put on a brave face the
majority of the time, but it has had a big impact. It changes what
you do, how you feel about things, about people. I didn't even want to
see my Borrie mates because I didn't want to be near a guy.
Please contact us if you know anything about that attack. It's
really important that this man is found. What advice do you have to
people to stay safe late night? They should make sure they have
planned their route home. Don't walk alone if they can help it. Be
aware of their surroundings. And ideally, get a taxi home to the
front door. Thanks, Gemma. Hopefully the viewers can help to
catch this man. Over to you, Rav. A terrible ordeal. Let's see if
anyone out there can help the police. Now, time for some more
crimes caught on camera. This customer has come in to look
at the rings in his jewellery store in Uxbridge in Middlesex. He spends
time casually chatting to the assistant about what he is looking
for. The assistant puts the rings on the counter and to find out what
he really fancies, having them for nothing. He grabs two rings worth
five grand, and runs for it. Don't let this be run rings around anyone
else. If you recognise him, get in touch.
Two guys break into this newsagent in Hythe in Kent injury this year.
It looks like they might have forgotten to bring a back. They
come back with what looks like a duvet cover. And they manage to
fillet with �5,000 of cigarettes. We do not see their faces, but you
may recognise the Lennon. Come on, help us smoke out these thieves.
Last one for now. See if you can help us with this one. Lloyds TSB
in Greenwich in London, February this year. This man has his face
partially covered but that bobble hat is memorable enough. The gite
in the pink jumper passers, banking his takings of �10,000 all in that
bad. The thief goes outside and the camera picks him up pacing up and
down. He goes back in, made a grab for the bag before making a run for
it. With his distinctive hat and tracksuit, someone must know who he
is. Come on, let's hope the police catch him. -- let's help. If you
recognise anyone, you know what you need to do. Dave.
Thanks. Here is our star guest, she is very brave. Tell us briefly how
she save your life? An incident in Swindon, a man with
a knife, he came out of the house. We challenged him, he came at us.
She was stabbed, defending it, because she wouldn't back off.
were stabbed seven times. The back of the neck, lead and face. And she
was stabbed because she would not let go. Remarkable, a young police
dog, her first operational deployment in a violent situation.
She kept hold of him and she saved my life. She saved the lives of the
other police officers because the man was so out of control. She won
a special award for bravery. PDSA gold medal, the highest order
for his million dog for bravery, which she richly deserves and I am
thoroughly proud of her. Not only your love but potentially saving
the lives of other police officers. -- your life. For he was in a very
disturbed state of mind, armed with two knives, anything could have
happened. Well done to you. A quick update, new details on the
conman Robert Kerr featured earlier. Please kick those calls coming in,
we need to catch him. A police officer has called in with
a good lead on the CCTV pictures of a mobile phone snatch in ones worth
in London. And some calls with potential names.
The helicopter has landed. What were you doing?
We were called out to a patient with anaphylactic shock, a life-
threatening emergency. The aircraft got there in eight minutes. Five
minutes to hospital. How is the patient? Making a good recovery.
Critically ill to start with. That's to was getting there so
