Savvy Mobile Phone Owner Captures Video Of Theft In Progress

If you want to protect your belongings, you should probably buy a mobile phone with a nice video camera and learn how to use it. Like this woman in Oakland, you may find yourself unexpectedly recording a theft in progress.

The story begins with an Oakland woman who was robbed and sexually assaulted by a man who broke into her apartment. The police investigation into this crime is made easier by a blurry video shot with the victim’s mobile phone. The minutes-long video shows the assailant casually removing computers and other items from her house. Let’s hope her willingness to come forward with this video helps bring this man to justice.
