Victim Beaten By Folding Bike
Last week, a man riding a folding bike late one evening in the Houston suburb of Pasadena was robbed and beaten by 2 hispanic assailants. The robbers jumped out of a dark alley and pulled the man from his bike. One robber beat the victim with the victim's folding bike while the other attempted to stab the victim with a knife.
The victim told police that he could not hear the robbers because he was listening to his iPod and couldn't see them because it was dark.
What's the moral of this story? Be alert! If you must ride while listening to an iPod, keep the volume low enough so you can still hear things like approaching cars, barking dogs or thugs running up to assault you from behind.
