Bike mugging – Sat 24 Oct at 09h30 – Oceanview Hill

I was travelling in my car with my family towards Oceanview from the Soetwater turnoff over that small hill. We were in the process of a conversation about our friend Kelson having his bike stolen when we witnessed a cyclist getting pulled off his bike by 3 adult males who attacked him with rocks and ran off with his bike. – Specialised Carbon. I drove at them hooting but they ran up the jeep track towards the reservoir. There is a boom there so I jumped out the car and gave chase shouting and bellowing at them to drop the bike….. the bike owner ran with me.
They started throwing rocks at us – we threw rocks back. We just kept chasing them and shouting while my wife, Jules, flagged down another car. After about 400m they realised that we were not going to give up so they dropped the bike but they ripped off his Garmin 810 GPS and his tool bag before disappearing. There was 1 larger male with dreadlocks in his 30s and 2 adult males in there mid 20s with short dark hair. This place is perfect for ambushes as there is a blind spot and there is no cell reception.

We need to stop this ….. any suggestions? Maybe we need to set a few traps. I am keen to catch these scumbags.

A helpful tip when reporting service problems to The City

Anyone requesting any kind of service (including the answer to a question) from any employee of the City is supposed to get from that official a C3 reference number for that request. Asking for a C3 number sometimes has an electric effect on the official, and sometimes might make you a life-long enemy!
