Mug-In Home Invasion– Lesson Learned Newsletter

A Lawton OK woman leaving for work was locking her front door when she suddenly realized that a man was standing behind her, pushing something hard into her back. He said it was a gun and to open the door. When they re-entered her home, he knocked her unconscious (twice), looted her home, then vanished.

Lesson learned: We become immersed in our daily routines and don’t think to guard against an uncommon threat. It’s human nature – and the common denominator in most crimes. But the victim above, in the future, will likely always scan her surroundings before leaving her home. You should learn from her misfortune and do the same. (By the way, she’s lucky she wasn’t harmed further.) See Mug-In for more lessons.
