I got mugged last night - Page 2

Did you forget your Rape Hornâ„¢?

I had a knife pulled on me once. It was 3am (or so) and I was walking back home through a not-so-nice area. At the time I was very fit, into martial arts etc. so I did the right thing....I RAN. The guy didn't give chase so I was fortunate.

It's a scary thing to happen. Glad to hear you are okay. Definitely don't feel angry about losing some cash and a phone - you are okay and that's what's important.

Several long years ago, someone tried to mug me in WDC. The problem was that they were high (on drugs or booze), it was daylight & sunny, I spotted him from a few hundred yards away (eg. I wasn't listening to music or otherwise distracted) and I was armed with triple-action Mace spray (eg. I did not have it attached to some stupid keychain or tucked away in my briefcase - it was in my hand).

The funny thing was that 99% of my fellow classmates felt I was the bad guy. No - they hadn't been there. They only wanted to know the race of the other guy. I became Bernard Goetz.

No regrets. The same attitude also saved me from a mugging in the UK. It's not like it happens everyday but being prepared makes a huge difference. People ask why I chose not to run with iPod or don't talk on my mobile while walking (unless absolutely certain of the area) - it's because in both cases, you give off the impression of being distracted, and for many muggers, that's exactly what they are looking for.

Sorry to hear that you got the wrong end of it. At least you were not injured.

Sorry to hear that, Conne. I hope you are feeling better.

Whereabouts was it? It's hard for me to imagine a street near dupont where this could happen unless it was past 4 am.

Anyway, you did the right thing, $90 and your cell phone is small change compared to taking a risk.

Did you report it? I hope they catch her.

I can picture conne going home and sucking on his thumb, still trembling from the incident. Not to be too much of an ass, it still sucks he got jacked from a monetary perspective.

sorry dude, glad you're ok.

Conne, sorry to hear this but glad you're okay. Where and what time did this happen?

This is a reminder to me to be careful when I'm in DC. I tend to walk around a lot not always aware of my surroundings.

Have the cell phone company trace the phone, the suspect probably still has it and will probably use it.

One thing nice about this day and age, is nobody can do shit them self. If he did try to use the knife on you, it was probably made in china and so dull it wouldn't cut because nobody can fucking sharpen a knife anymore.

Wrong. Even a dull cleaver can break through bone with little actual force behind it. Considering Conne's bones are probably about as strong as a chicken's, and the rest of his body has about the same muscle mass as a chicken's, he would have been dead in one swipe.

Welcome to the Republican Party!

That's definitely a scary thing.

I was nearly mugged by a mob of 'east-african males' walking home from a party a few months back. I punched one in the face and ran as fast as I possibly could. I was lucky to get away.

Of course, the punch in the face probably wasn't the smartest idea, but my animal instinct got the best of me.


I haven't walked the same route to that house since.
