Knife-wielding attacker targets beachwalkers

Noordhoek Beach in Cape Town is to get warning signs indicating that it is a mugging hotspot

The signs come after at least 8 people were mugged in separate incidents at the beach since February, the Cape Times reported.

Community Safety MEC Dan Plato said tourists were most vulnerable.

“Specifically tourists don’t know the dangers of the area. What we will have to do is put up signboards that say: 'Only walk in these designated areas' or 'Please don’t go beyond this point’,” he said.

Plato was also looking at the possibility of installing quad bike patrols but said this would not solve all crime.

“Attacks are happening almost any time of the day. If criminals want to attack, they attack.” 

  • In the most recent incident, a father and daughter were attacked by a knife-wielding man on the beach on Saturday. The father was stabbed in the right leg. A cellphone and ring were taken.

Table Mountain National Park spokeswoman Merle Collins warned people to walk in groups of four or more and not to carry valuables.

Are they going to give those signs a police badge and an R5?

Its like those stupid signs saying 'Hijacking Hotspot". It is just mind blowing that some twit thinks a sign is going to be more effective than a visible police presence.

......... on second thought, maybe they should outsource it to ADT as it is probably a cop doing the mugging

Please dont allow these thugs to rule our beaches, get more securities, employ more police, those signs you are proposing will be sending a wrong message to the tourists
