I will try to keep it as brief as possible...
Last week my other half (OH) heard the alarm at around 8:30am and looked outside the window to figure out if it was her car and then she realised that it was the house next door. She went to the back window a few minutes later and saw a man in the back garden of the next door neighbour. He was trying to put a PS3 in a Tesco carrier bag! She asked him what he was doing and spoke to him for a minute and then he disappeared giving her excuse that it was his cousins house and he will be there soon to turn the alarm off.
She didnt buy it and rang the cops. The cops were there in 2-3 minutes, she gave the description and statement. They later phoned to ask my OH to come in to identify the robber. She was shown video clips of 9 people and she identified the correct person.
Now my neighbour has got his PS3, laptop, etc back and the robber is in prison for a week before bail.
The problem I have now is that he is pleading not guilty and police want my wife to come to court! So she is not too sure and is panicking.
The robber apparently lives on our street also... I would like some advise on weather she should go court or not. She is always at home with the kids and dont feel safe incase the robber or his family approaches her or threatens her. The robber will also know that it was her to identify him as she was the only witness.
Thanks in advance to everyone taking time out to read this. Any help appreciated.
