Just wondering what the age the woman was that had her purse and cell phone snatched. Used to older people were prime targets...get the feeling no one is exempt.

She was 24, the report states.

The 'safe" was unsafe for its intended purpose! (I assume that explosives played no part in its destruction.) What were the brand name, size, weight, and dimensions of the "safe"?

The summary I have didn't say these details, unfortunately. But I see where you're going with this... it would be nice for safe consumers to know. Will call the owner in the morning to ask. :)
