Robbed while stopping at a Robot

I stopped at the Robot in Maydon road and as i was waiting for the robot to turn green, i felt a sharp object against my neck.
One of the attackers then switched my vehicle off and started searching me.

At the same time another assaulted my friend. They stole my cellphone, money and license and laughed and walked away. I was shocked at the people that were just standing there and watching.

I wonder what's going to be the case with the tourists visiting our country, when we citizens can't safely stop at a robot. If we don't stop at the robot, we have to deal with fines. If we do, we get robbed and i was lucky, some get killed.

I cant understand why our justice system sucks so much. Police were suppose to be at those areas, instead of backing traffic up on the motor way during peak time or tormenting tax divers. We have bigger problems than overloaded taxi's.

    Thank you for sharing your story! Yes I also wonder what is going to happen to all the people coming here for the World Cup. They will be robbed and taken advantage of!
