So at my house my brother and his pregnant girl friend just moved in they are staying here for a little bit because my brother has some trouble he has to get himself out of. My grandmother is also staying with us.

Last night the house was really crowded and loud and i kept getting interrupted so around about 11 o clock I took off to go for a walk. I went to the park near my school were i grew up. I live in a fairly decent neighborhood i wasn't worried at all about it.

I stayed at the playground for a little while just relaxing enjoying the peace and quiet. I finally decided to come home and started walking towards my house it was about 1 am by now.

So i get to my street but decide to walk another block. the street that my house is on is like a U so there is only one entrance and one exit to the block. I walked by a house at the end of the U that had a party going on the kids yelled to me. I go to school with some of them so i stopped to talk for a minute. they wanted me to hang out but i said no and after a minute left. I got to about 50 yards from my house and two kids come running at me and pushed me into bushes they held there fists up and were threatening to hit me. i gave them my wallet and ipod and they took off.

Besides a few bruises from the bushes i am okay.

So my brother comes running out and we start chasing the kids they run back to the house with the party and try to hide. We find them and my brother grabs one of them and throws him on the ground. we start yelling at them to give me my stuff back. they were all really drunk. they were pathetic. so after about fifteen minutes of yelling. we got my stuff back. My brother had a shirt on that said ARMY because he used to be in the national guard. they thought he was a soldier and he told them he served three terms in Iraq they believed it they were scared of us. after i got my stuff back the guy who lives in the house comes out drunk and high and started asking what we were doing we told him what happened and he started hitting his kid right in front of us. Usually i would have been angry to see a kid get hit by an adult but i didn't feel sorry for these kids

I wasn't going to file a police report. My brother keeps telling me not to and my parents don't want me to either they want me to let it go.

But i called the police department and they said to come in and file a report i really think i should so in the morning i am going to.

I learned my lesson for now i on i wont go walking by my self at night. next time i feel like leaving i will take my car instead.

Anyways i'm okay. it was really scary though. but now i have a cool story i can tell every one when i get back from spring break.

wow that is something to talk about, glad everything seemed to work out okay in the end

i think your brother may think he might get in trouble if you file a report, they may try to say he hit them or something, but if you feel it's a good idea then go for it, it's probably a good idea to report it i think especially if you have a run in with them again

wow! Glad you're ok and got your iPod back!

Do you worry about them coming after you again? Hopefully not, but a police report might somehow be a tool to keep them away from you. Your brother sounds like a good one!

I don't worry about them coming after me again we scared them. not that i have super human strength i don't believe in fighting but if they were to start a problem with me i feel like i could fight them off at least well enough to get away.

That really really stinks man \:\( I go walking by myself at night, and nothing has happened to me. (Last night for example.....not exactley sober.) Carry something for self-defense, mace, a knife (I'll admit I have one when I go out at night, but would never condone using it, but as a deterrent, or if my life was on the line I would......) taser, learn self defense (martial arts).

ah carrying weapons like that will just get you in trouble, take something, less obvious, you may think a knife is a good weapon to do damage, but just about anything will suffice, i usually carry a strong metal pen, used in the right way that can be a deadly weapon, of course i've never done anything like that and i wouldn't use a weapon unless i was out numbered and so had to deal with them quickly

Ya I realize it's not a great idea, but I've had friends who have had bad experiences, and I'm kinda paranoid........but again, if it comes to between me and them, I'd use it, not before.

if used properly, your fists can be just as effective.

yeah that's true, but then if there are multiple people timing becomes important so you have to finish one off before the other comes and i would think that would require some extra implement

but even in self-defence you will probably get done for it (provided you win), but then at the time you may not have a choice but to fight like that, so an innoccent weapon will avoid premeditate questions and have a symapthetic jury

lol sounds like i've been thinking about it too much

i'm just against carrying knives, you would probably kill someone with a knife, but with a pointed object that can provide significant damage in certain places like a pen you most probably wont kill them but you will certainly stop them in their tracks

Oh man, I can relate. That is such a scary feeling. I've been mugged twice when I use to have to bus through the "bad" area from work to home. It's so scary.

Glad you are ok! \:\) and have an Army bro LOL

I'm glad your ok too! After my CSA when i was about twelve or thirteen i took some martial arts and i'm not going to say i wish i hadn't, but then again, did it stop me from getting raped again?..no. Any idiot can get their hands on a gun and then any weapons or martial arts is useless...unless you have a gun, but having a gun is generally not good. It might be protection, but it also provides a lot of potential for something really bad to happen. Once a gun get's involved in a dispute, there is no possible good outcome i believe.

Martial arts is good and maybe even gas or a tazer or something, but when it comes to protecting yourself, i think the best strategy is just not taking unnecessary risks.

Christopher, I'm glad you're OK. Yes, quite a tale to tell.

I hate it when we have to give up personal liberties (like being able to take a walk unmolested), but I also think personal responsibility plays an important role.

Like you, I live in a 'pretty safe' neighborhood, and I suspect the kids who mugged you were drunken hoodlums not hardened crack-heads. Rather than carring a gun or knife, I always walk with a walking stick, about 5 feet of hardened, finished hickory that will give anybody thinking about attacking me second thoughts at least. If he has a gun, well I'd be at a serious disadvantage no matter what I was carrying.

So for me, the adage 'walk softly and carry a big stick' is de riguere. If I had had it that night when I was gang-raped things might have gone differently.

Oh, and the police report; I think that depends on how badly your brother and the other guy scared those hoodlums. It's hard to stand by and watch corporal punishment being metted out, but when it is justified... well that's just the way it is, you have to fight fire with fire sometimes. Ask your neighbor, the one at who's house the party was. He probably knows these kids and might know if they learned their lesson. If they have, I'd let it go. If there was a chance that they'd try something stupid like that again, I'd go straight to the cops. But I think whipping them was the best first response.

IMHO

I'm glad you're safe.

Laz

Wow Christopher, scary. I would never think something like that could happen so close to my house, but I see now it can.

I'm glad you are ok.
