Hi,

A person who steals is called a thief. A person who robs is called a robber. What is a person who mugs called? I wanted to tell someone that if she put on a Muslim-style headscarf and dressed as a Muslim, her appearance would ward off muggers on the streets. Actually, I'm not sure if "ward off" is the right word.

Thanks.

    You've answered your own question: " . . . her appearance would ward off muggers on the streets." :)

    You need to ask your second question in a separate thread.
