Another attack at Redhill yesterday :(

"I was mugged at 16:30 on Friday 6 December 2017. I was walking on top of Redhill having parked in the designated lot at the end of Stonehaven Road near Cape Town municipal waterworks dam. I was on a path marked as part of Table Mountain National Park. I was with Kenneth from Olympia Bakery when we were attacked by six or so youth who appeared to be from Ocean View. I suffered laceration to my right bicep when they hurled stones at us and stole Kenneth's backpack. They also pointed revolvers at us but there was clearly no ammunition in the weapons. I have reported the incident to Simon's Town police station along with a medical report from the doctor who stitched me up." - Table Mountain Watch

That's good news... just hope that they actually go to jail! They do often catch these basterds but due to lack of actual evidence they tend to walk.
But yea. Catching them is a good start!
