Experienced something similar in my undergrad days. I had anatomy lab late (ending around 10PM), and this was at LIU: Brooklyn. Alright during the day, not so great place at night. So I'm walking to the train station. Some bum approaches me while I'm waiting for the walk signal to change. He has his hand inside his jacket pocket like he has a gun. Threatens to shoot me if I don't give him what he wants.
So I go take out my wallet and I'm about to hand it over, when he takes his hand out of his jacket pocket. Lo and behold, there is no gun. I'm gripping my wallet, and he's gripping my wallet. He starts yelling to let go. I pull out my switchblade knife with my other hand, and stab him dead center of his hand and pull. His hand kinda looked like Amare Stoudemire's hand pre-surgery.
