The Impact of Robbery
Even if you’re not physically hurt during a Robbery, it can be very traumatic for you to be threatened with violence and/or a weapon, to steal from you. Although it is considered common, it is classed as a violent crime. It can affect some people more than others but it’s normal to:
- Struggle to cope with the physical and mental affects.
- Feel anxious, angry or both.
- Have difficulty sleeping.
- Feel helpless.
- Avoid certain locations.
- Feel anxious about further threats or victimisation.
