Woman robbed of groceries, wallet in broad daylight in midtown Sacramento

A woman who lives in midtown Sacramento said she was robbed in broad daylight, just feet away from her home.Victoria Mapson said this all unfolded last Thursday around 3:00 p.m. Mapson told KCRA 3 she went to a corner store to pick up some ginger ale and bananas because she was not feeling well. On the way home, she said a man came out of nowhere near P and 24th streets in midtown and took her tote bag.”I didn’t have any cash on me, and they smashed my phone because they couldn’t figure out how to turn it off so you can stop tracking them, so it’s not like they even got anything out of it,” Victoria Mapson said.But Victoria Mapson said the more upsetting part of the incident was how bystanders reacted. She told KCRA 3 that when she was screaming for help and crying, her neighbors did not jump into action. She even described how one man called her crazy and said he couldn’t do anything.”That was just so deeply upsetting and hurtful, that someone could look me in the eye as a human and say I’m not going to help you,” Victoria said.Victoria Mapson and her husband, Evan Mapson, filed a police report. As that investigation continues, Victoria has a message for her community – and others throughout the Sacramento area.”If someone says they need help, listen. And at least make sure someone is okay,” Victoria Mapson said.Sacramento police told KCRA officers could not find the suspect at the scene. Evan Mapson said he was also frustrated by the lack of response from his neighbors. The
