I was alerted to this latest mugging by a friend on Twitter. It really is worth using social media such as Twitter and Facebook to keep yourself and your loved ones informed and safe:
The Chapmans Peak Neighbourhood Watch reported this latest mugging and it was posted on Facebook on the Noordhoek Community Page. To my knowledge the last mugging on Noordhoek Beach was 19 February 2012.
20 April 2013
Two men, armed with knives threatened and attacked walkers on the beach today (20 April). It happened at the Kakapo wreck at about 2.30pm . They made off with a couple of backpacks. One of the victims was injured, he was stabbed in the hand.
Please be alert and wary when walking on Noordhoek beach. Do not walk on your own.
