Nudist mugged at Sandy Bay


Cops have arrested two men for robbery at a nudist beach.

The suspects approached and threatened a man who was walking on Sandy Bay on Tuesday.

The Imizamo Yethu township men allegedly demanded the victim's bag containing binoculars, a cellphone and a wallet with R120.

After the robbery, they fled the scene.

Hout Bay police spokesperson Tanya Lesch says the victim immediately raised the alarm.

"The victim informed the vendor at the entrance of Sandy Bay, who contacted the police," she says.

"We caught the suspects in Dorris Road, Kronenzicht. The complainant was able to identify the two men and his property that was still in their possession."

Lesch adds the suspected robbers, both aged 25, will appear in Wynberg Magistrates' Court on Thursday.
