KTVU's Heather Holmes was doing a live report on a woman who was robbed and beaten when she became part of the story by being robbed while on the air.
Holmes' purse was inside an unlocked news van parked just steps away from the crew and across the street from police headquarters.
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.— Heather Holmes (@hholmesktvu) June 17, 2014
Credit cards now canceled. Locks changed. Lesson here... be aware of your surroundings at all times, including at police headquarters.— Heather Holmes (@hholmesktvu) June 17, 2014
