Street robbery can be defined as the theft of property accomplished through force or threat of force in an outdoor, noncommercial setting. This definition excludes other forms of property theft, such as those accomplished with fraud only. It also excludes robberies committed in locations such as residences, banks, convenience stores, or any other business establishment. Further, this definition excludes other acts of violence that occur in outdoor, noncommercial locations but do not involve property confiscation, such as assaults. This bibliography reviews some of the general treatments, data sources, research, theories, and prevention efforts centered on street robbery. It concludes by examining the relationship between street robbery crime and selected special topics.
