Came home at 1:30am, parked outside my garage, grabbed a bunch of dvd's that were in the passenger seat and turn left and saw him at the left of the garage.

demanded me to go to him, i said no, he demanded money, i said no, he showed me gun, i said ok i give you money, then he demanded wallet, i gave, and he left. i then ran up the driveway and saw an old car (couldn't make out what make it was) drive south from the street... tha'ts it. afterwards i reported it to the police and proceeded to cancel all credit cards and my atm card. there's currently a charge for gas on one of my credit cards. ( i haven't used my credit cards in days)

... gradual changes in response are confusion, disbelief, anger

ok people, lesson learned, look around and make sure no one is following you or near you.
This guy wasn't even following me. i think he was parked out on the street and just prowling to see who would come home first, by themselves, so that he could rob them. another thing is that i live in an apartment. the carport (police guy used this term) was easy access for him to rob me considering i had no where to run and no one would see the crime committed. grrr, if i see him again, i'll beat him in two.

he was a hispanic ahole, about 5'10" 170-180 lbs, possible gangster, wore a hat and really loose clothing. also had a moustache, dark complexion...
that's all i remember..

damn such disbelief. be careful people. let's hope they find him (and his accomplice?)

ps: sorry bout the grammar and etc. ;p i'm too lazy to write properly.

That sucks man. You did the right thing though. Give them what they want and let them go. Cancel everything as soon as you can. Might have the cops check out any possible security cams at the gas station they filled up at on your card. I can imagine how angry you must be right now. Criminals suck.

I'm sorry to hear that man.

I've never been mugged; I've always wondered if they would actualy shoot you. I mean, murder is life in prison or the death penalty . . . theft is a few years in jail.

Then again I'm 6-5 so most people don't even bother me.

dude, i was prepared to beat him down (and do some sort of hold on him) but he then showed his gun so i decided to not take chances.

ya, hope this never happens to anyone else. i wish i could've gotten a drivers license... then that would be awesome. heh. ah well. more hassles for me -_-
isn't life grand?

well it's sad you couldn't beat the living sh|t outta him. :frown: but you did the right thing. your wallet is not worth more then your life. i tend to just carry no more then $20 and always use my credit cards for transactions.

A gun can do a lot damage not worth the risk of permanant damage or death for a few bucks.

Yeah, save the heroics for the movies. You did the right thing, without a doubt.

Precisely why I want a concealed carry permit.

Glad to hear you're not hurt, but an even better ending would be you not hurt & the would be mugger dead.

This is exactly why I will be getting my CCP and a Glock .40 subcompact or compact in 5 months. I have been robbed before and it is a sickening feeling. I want that bastard to do it again. I will say yeah let me get my wallet and put a bullet in him.

do they offer the "conceal permit" to people in california? probably not, huh?

i'm thinking of getting a gun to put at home now for defensive purposes.

happened to me in LA years ago.... no lost of money, but got hit in nose..... (2 guys, i was sitting on a bus bench waiting for a bus to go to "Disneyland". Yeah, i was a tourist traveling single. Early morning like 6:00 with my backpack. One hold me up on the neck from back and the other come from front. When i try to loose the one locking up my neck, the one in front hit me and they both ran off. some bleeding on nose and the front teeth tips took some damage...

Yes, but the conditions for getting one may be out of reach. You need a compelling reason for having one in CA. such as carrying lots of Cash/ jewels/ etc.
A gun in the house would not have helped you on the street.
