Mugged in London

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 1 May 2008 | Views [1487]

It was a terrifying encounter: I lost all of my personal belongings, but at least I escaped unharmed. I was walking through Hyde Park in Central London one night when I was confronted by three males. One of them was carrying an army knife: he told me to shut up and not to scream. The men took by backpack with all my belongings before leaving me alone. I went to the metropolitan police station in Belgravia where I filed a report. Thankfully, I still had my passport, credit card and yellow card certificate, but among my possessions in the stolen backpack was: a tent, a sleeping mat and sleeping bag, video camcorder, an Olympus film camera, clothes, diary, clothes, guidebook, a small stove and cooking utensils.
