    There is no excuse for what this turd did to this girl in Derby yesterday afternoon but please advise your children, grandchildren & pupils to take care in public. One for tutorials, perhaps.

    I agree, we should tell them. I'm forever telling my grandkids to be careful. But they seem to think things like that only happen to others, and are never going to happen to them. Scary.

    She put up a fight! But probably not a wise thing to do.

    You have no way of knowing whether your attacker is high on something. Far better to lose your phone, than lose your life :eek:

    I didn't spot any conspicuous display of wealth on the girl's part.

    I think she was just in the right place at the wrong time. It's commonplace to see youngsters walking down the street texting and chatting to their friends, on their shiny new smartphones, oblivious to what's going on around them. The mugger may have followed her for some time, before picking his time to attack.
