OAKLAND, Calif., June 19 (UPI) -- An Oakland television reporter had her purse taken while she was reporting about a woman who was violently mugged for her purse and cellphone on Monday.
KTVU's Heather Holmes was on the scene reporting when her stuff was taken from a television truck that was parked near Oakland 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
Despite being upset about her loss, Holmes made it clear that the person who suffered the biggest injustice was the woman who was robbed and beaten.
While it's a bummer that my purse was stolen, it doesn't compare to what purse snatcher's did to this woman. http://t.co/cdAGWPnnep— Heather Holmes (@hholmesktvu) June 17, 2014
