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.





The victim of the mugging was at least partially saved when some Good Samaritans came to her aid and frightened off the thieves.

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.
