Muggings, robberies must be reported

2015-07-21 06:00

It’s been safe and quiet for the last few months at sunrise beach where local Muizenberg residents enjoy walking their dogs or just taking a family stroll.

But in the last week three violent attacks have occurred.

Two Sundays ago a man was robbed at knife point and last Tuesday two separate incidents of ladies being robbed at gun point, at 10:00 by a couple of youths.

This is terrible. The sad thing is most of these are never reported to the police, as people feel “What’s the point?” Then they complain that the police do nothing. These attacks need to be reported in order for the law to do something about it!
