Amanda, The mugging took place on the beach just south of BC's around 10:45 on Saturday. Troy was walking alone to meet up with friends, but there were people everywhere up and down that stretch. In fact, a couple walked by during the act and thought that they were just fighting. I guess you would say that my son is a local-tourist. He's been here for about 6 months helping me with a few projects. He goes back to NYU next week. He jokes about going back to where its safe-NYC!!
