Everyone take note. Tourist season is upon us and the criminal element of the island is showing its ugly face. My son was mugged and robbed Saturday night just south of town. He was beat up pretty bad and the thieves made off with his wallet, cell phone, and clothes (minus shorts.) We reported this and the police said that there was a rash of burglaries and muggings over the weekend. Be careful.

Where down south?

What time of night?

On the street or the beach?

Was he alone or with friends?

Is he a local or a tourist?

Thanks for the answers.

That's v sad. Sounds like crime has really taken an upswing in AC lately. Anyone know how many police are employed there?

I never felt comfortable walking around without my boyfriend at night. I don't know if I was just being paranoid, but either way, we never allowed that to happen.

Amanda, The mugging took place on the beach just south of BC's around 10:45 on Saturday. Troy was walking alone to meet up with friends, but there were people everywhere up and down that stretch. In fact, a couple walked by during the act and thought that they were just fighting. I guess you would say that my son is a local-tourist. He's been here for about 6 months helping me with a few projects. He goes back to NYU next week. He jokes about going back to where its safe-NYC!!

kristykins, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you! It's common sense for a woman not to walk around alone at night, and two people should still be careful where they go.

Is it terrible that the people just walked by? Or does Troy feel like they couldn't have known?

I had a feeling it was just south of BCs.

Such a dark spot.

Hopefully a call into Insp. Sabal can help put a light(s) in that area. I will keep you posted.
