At no point did I notice the woman stop and look around on her way to her vehicle. It appeared she only looked straight ahead in the direction of her car.
She did not stop and look around after unlocking her car or opening the back door to place the packages.
She did not stop and look around when she finished placing packages in the back seat and before opening her front door.
She did not immediately lock her car upon entering.
By then it was too late. The attacker had already observed her actions enough to profile her as an easy target. So he pounced!
Had this woman carried herself differently. Had she had been watchful both going to the car, and while at the car, he likely would have avoided her as the victim and waited for another easier score. Not once did this lady scan the garage and look over her shoulder. Not once!
Yes, we can't all be on high alert 24/7/365... But there are critical times when you need to at least be looking around. Walking by yourself to your car in a dimly lit parking garage is absolutely one of those critical times you should be paying attention.
