I just had an experience with one guy begging while the other guy Try to sell tissues. One tried to go in my pocket but I pulled my knife and slashed at one of them and they both ran.

I was walking on Mickey Leland Street after sunset, and if two young men were holding my jacket wanting to steal it, I managed to escape and I informed the police, in vain, as if nothing should have been taken into account, and similar events were repeated with me in different places in Addis Ababa.
