I'm a Mugger—Here's How to Outsmart Me

Don't walk around alone

David Solano is serving a sentence of 25 years to life for robbery, which is the conviction muggers often receive. Having mugged at least 100 people, his favorite target was, as he puts it, "anyone alone." In fact "being alone" was always Solano's first criterion in selecting targets—before gender, before age, before physical build…before anything. Bear in mind, however, that being in a crowd can make you more vulnerable to pickpockets, which is just one of the 18 secrets pickpockets don't want you to know.

Avoid desolate areas

Sometimes walking alone is unavoidable. When that's the case, it's better to do so in well-lit areas that have some pedestrian traffic. That would specifically exclude empty subway platforms, which, as Solano points out, are a preferred mugger venue. This goes double for the portion of the platform nearest to the entrance of the tunnel. Tunnels are common escape routes for muggers because they're dark and you're less likely to chase a mugger into a tunnel. When it comes to traveling safely, you might want to steer clear of these 12 most dangerous travel destinations.

Always plan your own escape route

Even more popular with muggers than an empty subway platform is an empty subway car, according to a survey of hundreds of convicted robbers in New York and New Jersey state prisons. Why? Because if a would-be mugger boards at the next stop, you're stuck with no escape route, at least until the train stops again. If you find yourself alone on a subway car, consider moving to a more populated car or the conductor's car, and think twice before getting on a train with only one other person on it, particularly if anything about that other person gives you pause.
