    Interesting character though. Imagine becoming an urban legend in your own lifetime.

    Indeed. The dude's got me intruiged. How do you become an urban myth? Imagine being a the boy that he comes up to, then you realise all those urban myths are actually true, and the dude's standing next to you.

    Makes me think of other urban myths around my area.

    Having grown up on Merseyside, I always thought Purple Aki was an urban myth and was shocked when I found out he was a real guy!

    That's crazy and brilliant, how an urban legend can grow and then turn out to be true. Who's the furthest from merseyside here who's heard of it?

    During the court case, details of Arobieke's "stalkerís manual" were disclosed; a book Arobieke had compiled that was "full of details about victims' body measurements, contact numbers and families."

    Duuuuuuuuuuude.

    'Purple Aki' was said to have earned his name because he was "so black he was purple"

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    I bet a lot of them have a grain of truth in them though. Around my way (at the time, Barnes), it was the screwdriver murderer, who had apparantly nailed foxes and other critters to trees around Barnes Common and it was 'only a matter of time before he does it to a person'.

    Arobieke was released on licence from prison on 26 October 2006. Unusually, Merseyside police applied to Liverpool Magistrates' Court for an interim Sexual Offences Prevention Order against him, although he was never convicted of a sex offence. Under the terms of the order, Arobieke was banned from...asking people to do squat exercises in public,

    Brilliant.

    Well I've heard of him but that was either on here or on b3ta (think it was b3ta actually) rather than through playground urban legend

    LOL, I really wouldn't doubt if there was some truth too some of these myths.
    I remember a lot of folks being dead serious about spannerman.

    He asked my mate to show him his muscles years ago, my mate was a bit flattered as he had just started working out and let him have a squeeze. It was only afterwards that he realised it was Purple Aki. we all thought he was an urban myth at school, according to the legends he would ask "Pop or Slash?" if you chose pop then he would rape you and kill you, if you chose slash he would kill you then rape you.

    There's been at least one thread on this chap here before. Same mugshot in the linked story. Surely there must be a newer one. It's not like the fella has kept a low profile from the police.

    In my yoof, I saw him a few times. He used to frequent a gym in the kensington area. Always carried a plastic bag with him...

    I didn't think it would possible for this to get any weirder. What was the significance of the bag? Was it like the briefcase in Pulp Fiction?


    Pop or slash was a bumming or his initials carved into your buttocks, afaik.

    That makes a lot more sense (if such a thing can actually make any sense) than the choice of being dead before or after you're raped.
