Anti-crime education includes information to protect people from muggings. Sometimes a crime that starts as a robbery can turn more violent. According to self-defender.com, "Your chances are about one in three that you will be hurt in robbery and one in five that your injury will be serious enough to require hospitalization." Take precautionary steps to avoid becoming a victim. First, be more alert when out at night since most muggings occur after dark. Second, stay in well lit areas and walk with a group. Finally, walk with confidence when you are out so you don't look like a victim.
