[quote=stlrz d][quote=Flasteel]I was never mugged...I was robbed. My pickup got broken into and all of my tools were stolen along with some other stuff. I went to some pretty seedy places in D.C. on my own (and was on very high alert), but I never ventured into Baltimore outside of driving from the airport.[/quote:a3j57gos]Originally Posted by "stlrz d":a3j57gos
Gotcha. I had an incident where a guy tried to steal my bike out of the back of my truck but it was cable locked to the bed...no dice.
I saw him doing it and yelled out the window at him. It was kind of eerie that he calmly climbed out of the back of the truck, looked up at me, closed the cap, put up the liftgate and slowly walked away.[/quote:a3j57gos]
Man, that reminds me of a story with a guy trying to actually steal my truck. I was in bed and heard my neighbor shouting something, so I looked out the window to see this guy apparently trying to start my truck with a screwdriver. I jumped out of bed and headed down the steps just as the guy was peeling off on foot towards the beach. I saw the guy go onto the beach as I gave chase, then relized I was in my underwear and nothing else. So I quickly ran back to my house and put on some shorts and flops, then went to get him. I found a guy passed out on the beach and couldn't tell if it was him or not, so I grabbed him by the shirt and started screaming at him and could tell he was obviously f-ed up. I couldn't bring myself to smash his face in without knowing if he was the actual thief, so I took one of his shoes and told him I was going to check the prints in the sand around my vehicle; if they matched I was going to brain him.
Needless to say I couldn't find any matching prints and when I went back for the guy five or ten minutes later, he was gone...with one missing shoe.
Oddly enough it was the same truck, but the guy only slightly damaged my steering column and didn't get away with anything.
