A New Zealand volunteer working at a school in Pellsrus was mugged last week when walking from Cafe Kimo to the Mexican restaurant, according to the JBay Crime Reporter.
The muggers told him that they have guns and knifes and will hurt him badly if he doesn’t give them what they want.
The New Zealander handed over his cell phone and wallet after which the thugs left the scene.
The incident follows the rape of a young woman, also believed to be a tourist, on Main Beach after a night out on the town.
Residents are cautioned not to walk alone along the beach front after dark.
