A young tourist visiting Jeffreys Bay was attacked and mugged for a cell phone last week.
The woman, whose name is known to JBay News, described her ordeal:
“I was walking back from the factory outlet shops to the hostel where I was staying at around 2 pm in the afternoon.
I was attacked by a black man around 5″ 6 – 5” 8 with short hair, dark pants and a leather (or leather looking) black jacket.
He had a small gap between his two front top teeth and was carrying a knife with a blade around 3 – 4 inches long with a black handle.
He called out “hey sister” twice when I turned around he asked for the time then produced the knife.
He knocked me to the ground and was about to stab my hand before I let go of my phone.
At that point he ran away and I got up screaming for help and chased him. People from the Joshua Project came out and helped me.”
The phone is Samsung galaxy S6 serial number on the back is *359845/06/400524/7*.
