Friend's son mugged in Florence walking back to hotel very late at night

Jump to last reply

Just a head's up. He was with his parents on a Tuscany tour and met a nice Canadian girl who was alone. They decided to go out to a club that night. He had walked her back to her hotel, then had not felt threatened, did not see a taxi so walked back to his own hotel at 4.30 a.m.

He is over 6 ft. tall. He was walking briskly but was surrounded by four fellows who hit him in the face, threw on the ground and that's when he thought it was all over. If they had kicked him in the back or chest ( where he has had several serious operations) he might not have lived.

They stole his wallet and Iphone but only gave him a black eye and a huge lump on his hip where he was forced to the ground in the street.

We see again that it can be very dangerous anywhere in the world to be alone at night on the streets of any town.

Do not do overseas what you would not do in your own big city, and then even cross your fingers.

I think it was fortunate the girl had already been taken back to her hotel.
