You should write your account in the first-person singular.
Imagine that you are the teenager in the story. I want you to write an account of the incident and how it affected you.

*This discussion was a way to get into the muggers head and see him through Julio’s eyes. I suggest writing ASAP in or just after this lesson. Don’t worry about the words, the length or the structure. Write a story in the first person (i.e. in the eyes of the mugger) recalling his side of the story!
