    Go to the police and report the crime. Because if you can get them replaced if they are insured, i think with ipods, they are only insured for a year. Then go and visit all the local pawn shops to see if anyones brought in your ipod and phone in exchange for cash.

    You should definitely report it to the police.

    Have you phoned up to get your phone blocked? I'd ring the police anyway, although I'm not sure anything will come of it.

    I've never been mugged but I can imagine how you feel.

    The police won't do ****, they won't bother investigating a mugging, but report it for insurance purposes anyway.

    You need to report it to the police to get a crime reference number to give to your insurance company if you make a claim. You should do this today. Call the police station direct if you want to - number will be in the phone book or on yell.com. You just need to tell them what happened, when and what got stolen. They give you the reference number and that's about it.

    Sounds terrible though. Anyway you can tell your parents?

    Sorry to hear..it happens and its a *****.
    I've never been personally mugged yet but a lot of my friends have and its a bad experience.

    As the others said go and report it to the police.If your phone and iPod are covered by insurance then you may be covered.

    Just curious but did they just approach you and take your stuff or were you holding your stuff?

    All the best

    P.S.I agree the police won't do much because I remember someone stole my iPod in school and all I got was a ref number and a flipping victim support sheet :mad2: arghh

    make sure you call your phone company and get your phone blocked and then report it to the police dude because then at least you could get something back if they were insured.

    Well, they shouldn't have taken it in the first place.

    You sound hysterical. Obviously, most people do get into a panic after such a thing happening.
    I'm not being an idiot, but try to calm down first.

    Once you relax, you can probably remember more about the event that you think, try to write down anything you can, the police might find it useful later.
