Midtown walkers falling victim to robbers
The above link is to a story about the armed robberies of walkers in Midtown that occurred in the middle of the day.. when most people least expect to be victimized. It reminded me of a recent rash of armed robberies in my very own neighborhood. People have been approached by robbers while walking to and from their cars and even to the mailbox. Thankfully, two armed men who pistol-whipped a victim last week before raiding his home were arrested. Covering crime can often be unsettling.. but especially when you realize how easily you could become part of the story.
