A television reporter covering a spate of robberies in Oakland, California, had her purse stolen just a few feet away from her during a live segment outside of the police headquarters.
Miss Holmes said she chose to do her report in front of Oakland's police headquarters instead of the site of the afternoon attack because she thought it would be safer.
"Oh the irony of it all...while reporting on violent mugging, my purse is stolen. Thieves used my bank card 20 mins after swiping my bag," she added. "Credit cards now canceled. Locks changed. Lesson here... be aware of your surroundings at all times, including at police headquarters."
