Tonight around midnight I went to pick up my friend who lives in a condo in the heart of downtown. long story short as I pulled up he called me and told me he just got mugged with a knife literally around the corner from where I was parked and to pick him up down the block asap as he just ran like crazy to get away. We circled back to see if the guy was there and he wasn't. No description other than wearing droopy chains and dark clothing with a fixed blade knife in a pull down style sheath from his chest area. maybe 5-6" ish blade length. I walk through the same dark, lonely alley sometimes very late at night after drinking to get home (unarmed though if at bars) so now I am sketched out a little more. moral of the story: even if it's your own block or neighborhood things can happen. stay vigilant.
