she did not see or hear the suspect since the robbery occurred through an adjacent stall.

Hey, she was the one who went on an adventure! I do find this a little odd, aren't there security camera in there (or in front of there)?

that was my thought also-which is exactly why i hang my purse up-also the hygiene element of leaving purse on the ground.

And since I have also read of people reaching over the door while you were indisposed and yanking the purse off the hook, I wrap my purse strap around the hook at least once.

My DW and I don't bring anything to the parks that don't fit in our pockets.

Exactly, I don't bother bringing a purse or anything to the parks. Can't stand carry anything and to me it's just better to have things securely tucked away in my pants pockets.

I wear a cross-body strap bag which never needs to come off. I just turn the bag to the front when I use the bathroom.

Sadly criminals get everywhere.

I have two thoughts on this.

#1 How gross to put your purse on the floor

#2 I don't know what's up with Universal lately but it just seems like they are handling everything wrong. A woman gets attacked and they are light on security. Now I get that there shouldn't be cameras in a bathroom, lol, but really? She got an offer of two free tickets. WOW! *insert sarcastic tone* That was the best they can do?

Guess after they let so many people in to HHN that lines were 120 minutes long I am a bit bitter with them at the moment. I've had APs now for a couple years but seriously reconsidering anymore.

I feel bad for that woman.

I'm sure that Universal also covered her medical bills, even though that isn't mentioned.

It all sounds very bizarre to me. This all happened in the middle of the afternoon? Wonder which bathroom it was at.

And who said that they were short on security...someone in the gift shop? Hmmmm......did that imply that the response was slow or that just in general that more security would have prevented the incident? Not sure what the security had to do with it. And there was no HHN that night.
