Once in Mexico, once in Thailand, and once in Cambodia. I really need to quit traveling to the third world.

One morning, I was walking to the bus stop my sophomore year and as I was almost there, a man came walking towards me. He got close and asked if I had the time. I told him it was 7:10 and as he thanked me, and I began to walk away.

I got about 2 steps when he grabbed me from behind, put a big knife to my throat and said some ugly things. He began to drag me off the road towards a forestry area and told him he could have everything in my purse. As I went to reach for it...

I had the opportunity to push him backwards! I took off running to my friends house and everything turned out ok.

The end.

Had my banana and water stolen at the city bus stop bout 2 years ago. Was kinda weird the guy was a nut. I figured he was hungry so I just handed over the banana.

No. Close though. It involved a knife held to a throat. And a scream. They fled.

Three teenagers, one knife. I was walking with my then-boyfriend at night. The teens shoved us into the entrance to a closed store & put the knife to his throat. I'm sure they demanded money but I don't remember what they said. Totally unvoluntarily

I opened my mouth and screamed. The teens scattered & started to flee. A car had just stopped beside us. The couple inside had seen what happened & said "Get in; we'll take you wherever you want to go." We told them we thought we were OK, & were

only going a couple of blocks, but they insisted. We got in; they took us home; I've always been grateful to them. Two sets of total strangers; two very different interactions. The 2nd more than made up for the 1st.

Not exactly. I was accosted in my own bed once, as a child. It felt a lot like a mugging with the added bonus of never feeling truly safe in my own home again.

By whom? A stranger?

Yes. Someone broke into our home. It was a stranger. I was 9yo. I screamed when he accosted me, and he fled out my bedroom window. So nothing truly terrible happened to me that night, but my sense of safety was forever compromised.
