New Usage for Google Street View, Crime Watch

Google Street View was use to help nab some muggers robbing a 14-years old boy. It is either the victim is super lucky or the muggers are super unlucky (Or the Google Car just don’t care about the mugging). Either way, kudos to those that spotted this picture.

This image was captured by a Google Car (for Street View) while it was going round the city. The boy was mugged by these 2 person in the pictures. Apparently, the police was unable to determine the muggers. Luckily, this boy uses the Street View function and spotted this pictures.
