I got mugged

Yeah fellas, this isnt a joke. Last night around 130am by a parking garage. I was punched multiple times in the head/face, and I just threw all the cash I had and ran.

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.

Sorry to hear that man, hope you are alright. As they say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Do they have any idea who the guy was? Does he go to the school?

Re: I got mugged

Thanks guys, so much. It might seem silly but your posts mean a lot because I dont really have many people to tell. I dont know if I want to tell every single person I know, I am still thinking about not telling my parents because they will freak out.

So far I have told a selected few, so I guess it is nice talk about this stuff on the internet as "hooskins".

Yeah the cop took pictures, and he wasnt too worried so I guess he kinda knew I didnt need immediate attention. I thought it wasnt too bad last night, but I guess being drunk made it hurt less.

Right now I have a black eye, busted lip, swollen places on my face, and my heads hurts because of punches.

And I agree SBF, sometimes anyplace can be dangerous. I feel like I have taken living in the safe place of NOVA for granted, Charlottesville has a much dangerous population. I know this too and I was a freaking idiot for being alone and not just leaving the garage when I saw that guy. I had that feeling in my gut that something is wrong right when I entered the place, and I should have followed my instinct. Using that gut reaction is right 99% of the time.

Yeah, or just get a bit bigger which has been one of my goals. I have been working out and all that stuff alot more but this only motivates me.

I was actually taller than the guy who did this, and I would think stronger. But he was sober and caught me by surprise. I also didnt know wtf was happening and there wasnt enough time to reach. See I didnt even know if he had other people around him or what not, so I decided not to retaliate.

Should I have?

Don't put too much thought into it, it has happened to a lot of people, include yours truly. No sense in worry about things like this. Personally, I wouldn't tell my parents because they would freak out and it would occupy their minds for a long long time but that's just me.

Now if you see your parents all the time and you got a black eye, you got to tell them. "I got jumped, got in couple of shots of my own in there, I'm alright" should suffice.

Re: I got mugged

You bring shame to your people! Have you not learned how to fight from all the Bollywood movies you've seen? Dishoom Dishoom man

But seriously man, that really does suck. I'm glad that you're relatively ok

And no, I wouldn't have retaliated. You never who else or what else he had. Muggers aren't interested in fighting fair.

I'd say that you we're right not to try to retaliate. You never know if the dude has a knife, or worse, and it's not worth finding out. It sounds to me like you did the right thing.

I'm sorry to hear that but glad you're pretty much okay. I imagine that you'll be on edge for a bit, which is completely understandable. I just moved into the city and we walk everywhere and I try to constantly be on the lookout, but I guess if shit does happen then there's really not a whole lot you can do.

Don't take this the wrong way, but this makes me think of McLovin in the liquor store in Superbad. If only you had a video tape.

Its hard to say what somebody SHOULD have done in such a Effed up situation like that. Just be glad you were not hurt seriously and that you didn't lose much money(how much did he get?). This should be an experience that will live with you forever and hopefully you sharing your story will help somebody else realize that this can happen anytime, anyplace and to anybody. Too many times people believe the "it won't happen to me" stuff. you can never be too careful. If your gut tells you something isn't right, Then its probably true. God bless you and stay safe.

Absolutely not! You're inebriated and you don't know if he has a weapon.

Re: I got mugged

Man, glad to hear you are still around to tell this tale! I think you did the right thing, give them whatever they wanted and get the hell out of dodge. Did you get a good look at him? If so, you can always be on the lookout for the SOB and catch his ass by surprise one day :-).

Glad to hear you are recovering.
