Combined with knife crime, the capital is now witnessing a surge in moped "muggings" - the slang for street assaults.
Javid said that, while the overall levels of crime decreased, his priority was to fight against the increase in crime with knives and against serious violence.
British home secretary Sajid Javid has revealed that months before he was appointed to the top security post in the Theresa May cabinet, he was mugged outside the London Euston train station. The capital city of London has seen nearly a daily reporting of masked men on scooters committing crimes such as bag snatching, cellphone robberies, store break-ins, and even acid throwing.
Mr Javid, who was communities secretary when the incident occurred, has recently committed to giving police chiefs more support.
Oxford, Regent and Bond Street in London combined have 200 million visitors a year.
"It happened in a flash Before I knew what was happening, it (the phone) had gone. I was walking out of Euston station and reached for my phone to call a taxi", the minister said, in an interview with the Sun on Sunday. They just rode up, grabbed it and zoomed off, ' the Home Secretary said.
He continued: "I was angry and upset, but thought myself lucky not to have been stabbed or beaten up like many other victims who fall prey to these vicious criminals".
Simon Harding, associate professor of criminology at the University of West London, said the rise in these crimes could be because phones are more valuable than they used to be, and are an easy item to steal because people use them so much.
The UK can be proud that we are a leading nation when it comes to tech and innovation, but we want to do more to attract businesses to the UK and our migration system plays a key part in that.
"It's ridiculous", declared Javid.
Meanwhile, the Metropolitan Police said it is "doing all it can" to bring thieves to justice after figures suggested less than 5% of burglaries and robberies across the country are being solved.

The Tories like their leader to be tough on crime and - unlike Labour - bother a little less about the causes of crime. "You shouldn't have to worry about things like knife or other crime", he said.
