Woman fakes a seizure to avoid being mugged

Woman's quick thinking cons would-be muggers, killers

The note, scrawled on a torn piece of notebook paper, claimed guns were pointed at the victim and directed her to hand her wallet and purse behind her without looking and get off the train at Civic Center.

Oakland resident Julie Dragland told the San Francisco Chronicle the train was passing through San Francisco to the East Bay Saturday afternoon when someone behind her passed her a slip of paper. "Do not turn around until you have left Civic Center + you will live". "I did not want to give up my stuff, but I had no idea who was behind me".

Dragland, a PR Specialist at Sega, started "freaking out" and desperately tried mouthing the words "help me" at a nearby passenger. She slumped to the side and started shaking and crying, she said.

Herrera closing in on new Manchester United deal
"But you know when you play for Man United winning is an expectation and an obligation but I like that obligation to be honest". However, that was followed up by a rather tepid display and result against Swansea City .

The New York Post reports Julie Dragland was on her way home to Dublin in OH on Saturday and boarded a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train in Daly City when a person sat behind her and handed her the threat before 5pm local time, according to NBC Bay Area. She handed them the note. After that, the suspect got up and left the train at Powell Street station in San Francisco. Police described her as a white woman possibly in her 30s with long strawberry-blonde hair.

"I was terrified and then I started to be like, is somebody really going to shoot someone for a phone and a wallet?" But after that man exited the train, she pretended to have a seizure to draw other people's attention.

"I think it had something to do with watching a lot of 'Law & Order.' I think I saw that in an episode", she said. "I was very impressed with myself". However, they are reviewing footage from the train to try to identify the attacker. "Officers checked Civic Center Station, but did not locate anyone matching the suspect description". Dragland claimed that regardless, she would not be pressing charges, as she wants to put the chilling incident behind her.
