Just in: Soloist is mugged in centre of Viennamain
Lidia Baich was parking her car in broad daylight on the Mahlerstrasse, near the Opera when, as she opened the door, a hand reached in and snatched her bag. Lidia let out a yell.
The robber dropped the bag and fled.
Lidia is fine. ‘I came within a hair’s breadth of being a robbery victim,’ she says.
Vienna needs more cops on the streets.
