TV Reporter Gets Robbed While Reporting on Robbery

In the middle of a local news report on a woman who was beaten and robbed in Oakland, Calif., KTVU reporter Heather Holmes found herself the victim of a robbery when her purse was snatched from the TV truck on-scene near her.

Holmes tweeted about the unbelievably ironic crime shortly after it happened.

Yep, making this even stranger is the fact that the TV truck was parked right in front of local police headquarters…
