Magnificent Mile considered muggers mile

The Magnificent Mile in Chicago is now being called Muggers Mile.

A group called Guardian Angels" have been patrolling the street warning those living there and especially tourists.

They say there has been a rash of muggings, the main target being smart phones.

"Back in the day when people used to pay attention to what they're doing, now as people walk down the street they are doing like this all day long and they are not paying attention to what they are doing.  People are sitting out there, preying on them. The next thing you know, you're a victim,” said Guardian Angel Thomas Hunt.

Some think this group is just scaring people but others say they appreciate the heads up.
