British teenager Connor Dawes was a mugger who threatened and even sometimes attacked people before stealing their possessions. And after beating and robbing one particular victim, he escaped with the poor man’s wallet. As Dawes was rifling through it, though, he made a startling discovery – and it encouraged him to take stock of his actions.

Before that mugging had taken place, however, Dawes and a friend had been wandering around the English town of Nuneaton. Subsequently, they spotted their potential victim, a man who had been walking alone through the center of the town at 10:00 p.m. that night. So they began to follow him.
