Re: I got mugged

man most important thing is that you are OK. No need to be embarrassed in anyway. Fighting back would be dumb as shit seeing you were drunk. You did the right thing.

Being in college park we have to worry about this stuff when we go out. Its not fun to worry about and it sucks walking through an area when you sure as hell know you shouldn't be. The other week someone got robbed on our campus mall. That is in the f...ing middle of campus. MOst of the muggings happen a few miles off campus and if you are out there you seriously probably will be robbed if you are alone.

Being that we have muggings every once in a while the school sends out messages where they are and stuff and the description. No one is ever found. It is scary when you hear a gun is involved. Last year there was a saturday night where a group of high schoolers from the area went around robbing quite a few people. The police here cracked down on their ass. Every f...ing street corner was full of cops. They found 4 of them who used fake guns in the robberies. I was going from one place to another that night and we were in a group of like 25 people. Other than that i never hear of anyone getting caught after the incidents .


One of my friends carries a knife on him when going out to shady places. I tell him that if he uses that thing, he will be the one that is killed. I mean he is a pretty big guy but he doesn't have the mindset that these loonies have. They prey on people and beat the shit out of them for 40 bucks. They can easily kill you if you put them in a position to. However, they don't want to hurt you really. Be cooperative and they will be done in a minute. Its not worth 100 bucks.

Last night i was about 5 miles off campus. That was not a real good idea. It was shady as hell. My friend and I got a ride back with some girls and were gentlemen and walked them home after we parked. The thing is you can get robbed walking back on campus after you park at 3 AM.

Staying in groups is key. Also run across a area if you are really sketched out. Good exercise and who the hell is going to rob a guy that is already running. They are looking for drunk people that can't barely stand.

Should I have?
Hey, I can't find fault with a single thing you did. You got away safe and sound to tell the tale, with only a few bruises. I'd say that's a pretty good outcome.

I tend to be a hothead, so someone attacking me would make me pissed off and I'd probably attack back. But that'd be my emotional reaction taking over, and probably not the smart thing.

Like people have said, you never know if he's packing or what.

Re: I got mugged

Damn hoo that sounds like it really sucks. You did the right thing by not fighting back though, there's no telling if he had another weapon on him and since he was willing to rob you in the first place he probably would've been willing to go much further than that. Thankfully you got out of there alive with just a few bruises and less money. If you do decide to take self defense classes it probably won't help if you're inebriated. Just try to get through shady areas as quickly as possible, and listen to your gut instincts.

Yeah I just talked to a detective, and he told me this kind of stuff happens all the time, also a good amount of people do not report it.

He was asking for info, because they want to pursue this case. They have cameras in the garage and they could find this guy. Only problem is what if he is in a gang, I dont know where he lives and what he does. I could be putting myself in a lot more danger than just letting this whole thing go.

The detective said if caught he could get 20 years+. That is crazy, but I dont know if I would pursue that.

Yeah so monkeys are crazy in India. They are everywhere, streets, rooftops, etc. The monkeys jacked my veggies. There are fruit and vegetable dealers that come by your neighborhood trying to sell you stuff. So I bought a couple for the house we were staying at, and right before I entered the door a monkey jumped in front of me and grabbed all the shit from my hands and ran.

It was scary as hell.

That's a much cooler story then the time a pelican walked up to my older sister (who was only like 6 at the time) and bit her on the leg for no reason. Shes still afraid of birds.

Hoo, you gotta' step up with the Monkey stuff. You can't afford to get that rep in the marsupial community!
It goes like this:
"You gotta' ask yourself........monkey...do you feel lucky today? Well, do ya'..........monkey????"
Then CAP his monkey ass!!! The rest of them will fall in line

Re: I got mugged

Damn, sorry to hear about that Hooskins, and glad to hear your ok.


I went to school in NE D.C. for a year, and yeah... rule number one is never walk alone at night. A buddy of mine got pistol whipped literally less than a quarter mile from the dorms. He was alone, and it was 2:00am and he was drunk as well.

Pretty much every crime report they would post up on the walls dealt with people, alone, and at night.

I know one thing is for sure, you'll never be walking alone again on that route.

Re: I got mugged

I'm glad your are okay, hoo. A friend of mine was robbed at gunpoint here in Denver at a gas station. You always got to be on your toes.

As far as retaliation, each situation is different, but if an unarmed person attacks me, I am going to fight as long and as hard as I can. I'm not a tough guy, it's just the principle. Once, a guy approached me and told me to give him my shirt (I have no idea why). He had no weapon, and he was just hoping that he would intimidate me. I couldn't never just do that. I would feel undignified. I told him if he wanted my shirt he'd have to take it. He didn't. Of course I wasn't drunk -- that changes everything. Drunk people are usually terrible fighters. Unless you have a weapon, or outnumber me, then I'm gonna do my best to kick your ass.

I am safe and fine, just bruises and stuff. Only real issue is that this happened right by my house(on campus) and that is scary as hell. I reported everything to the police, but I highly doubt they are gonna catch this guy. I guess just a reminder to all the people out there in college, or any age to be safe and always walk with multiple people late at night. Especially when drunk.

I just thank God I am alive to post this message here. At one point when I was being robbed I was fearful for my life.
this is going to sound a little bad, but first im sorry you got mugged, thats fucked up, and second i'm sure no one expects to get mugged so close to home, but dude you really need to pay attention to your surroundings all the fucking time, a maybe consider taking self defense classed and calling my best friend (Glock 9mm) and stay strapped, you could have lost your life behind a few bucks, which i know you already know, but its better to say you killed someone, than to hear you were killed behind some bullshit, trust me get some heat, and go to the range, crime is horrible and you need to always watch your back!!!!!!!
