Then the "witnesses" woud be in jail for assault too. Sounds like they gave the police a description, probably a license plate number. You should congratulate them for doing the right thing and assisting the police in finding the bad guys. How do you know these witnesses weren't women, elderly, or maybe had kids with them at the time, who could have gotten hurt? Maybe by the time the witnesses heard the woman calling out for help, the robbers were running away? Why find fault with anyone but the muggers? Think before you throw out blanket criticisms.
