Table Mountain Mugging Update: Blockhouse / Rhodes Memorial area
Another mugging has taken place in the Blockhouse / Rhodes Memorial area.
Report from Table Mountain Watch Group:
I was ambushed on Friday afternoon 1 st Feb 2013 at about 17,30 . Four young well dressed guys knocked me down, one took my bike and the other 3 dragged me down the mountain in the river gulley in the hotspot just after the row of gum trees below the pudding route.
They threatened to kill me a few times,took my rider shoes, helmet, gloves and sun glasses as well. They then left me and headed down the river to upper Woodstock. I walked back up to the gravel road where some mountain bikers helped me. The guys wanted money which I did not have.
I ride this route about 120 times a year and never had a problem. Not a nice experience. I have been in contact with Table mountain bikers as well.
