Dealing with Street Robberies


To avoid a robbery

  • Be aware of your surroundings and conceal valuables like jewelry and phones while in public 
  • Keep your smartphones out of sight and easily accessible
  • Be wary of strangers trying to get close to you - protect your personal space
  • Keep zippers closed and pockets buttoned
  • Stay in well-lit areas at night, do not take short cuts through dark alleys, between buildings, or out of public sight

If you are the victim of a robbery:
  • Cooperate with the attacker - it is not worth getting hurt to protect your personal belongings
  • Remember everything you can about the offender (gender, hair and skin colour, clothing description - try pick a few things that stand out) and the last direction they headed
  • Get to the closest safe location and call 9-1-1
