Good Hope Crime Hotspot


My brother and I was walking towards CPUT, Cape Town Campus, to write an exam, opposite The Good Hope Centre in Cape Town as we had no choice but to walk, not thinking this would happen, it happened on 2nd September 2013 and was stopped by three colored guys, demanding everything, they first surrounded my brother, said we have a knife and stole his wallet and blackberry cellphone, and lucky did not come for me, and we were able to phone for help with my phone. We then had to carry on walking, to see a police van approaching us, my brother then flagged them down and sped off with him to try catch these very evil and bad guys but no luck. BUSTARDS!!!
This is the state of our beautiful country, so guys please do not walk around The Good Hope Centre, you will be approached by these guys and I dont wished what happened to us, on ANYONE!!
Play safe everyone.

    Hi Yes that whole section around good hope centre and also near the castle on darling street is dangerous. My friend and I were also mugged there by 2 colours guys with lots of tattoos and a 3rd guy who made us think he was coming to help us but pulled out a knife. Not sure of his ethinicity. May have been black or colourd.
