    I was walking my dog and could hear the victim wailing.
    She was mugged in clear daylight around 16:00, with the mugger taking her phone while she was going for a stroll with her young son.
    In the process she was apparently stabbed in her leg.

    Fortunately police and ambulance arrived within 5-10 minutes, and managed to help her.

    No sign of the mugger though, I hope they get him (most likely a men)

    99% likely to be a drug fiend stealing for a fix. Legalisation and state sanctioned medically controlled supplies is the only way to beat this scourge. Poor lady.

    My thoughts are with the victim and her child. I both they both make a full recovery and can move on from this sensless attack.

    The poor lady and her child must have terrified. Guust I hope the mugger is also caught and quick before they attack another innocent victim.

      I hope the same for them, she was extremely upset.
      Fortunately also her son with husband arrived within 10 minutes to be there for her.

      If only I arrived at that spot 2 minutes earlier I could have been more helpfull. Now everything had happened already.
