Anyone intending to visit Redhill / KleinPlaas: Be advised...
Two persons accosted hikers as they arrived at the Kleinplaas Dam. Apparently one of the hikers was struck in the leg with a bullet. The assailants went off on the path on the left towards Red Hill.

"Another robbery was reported in the Redhill area near Kleinplaas Dam on Sunday afternoon. Sketchy details have emerged about a group of boulderers who were held up by young men with knives and a firearm."

Witnessed another mugging at Redhill Kleinplaas dam today. 4 youths between about 10 and 16 with a pitbull robbed a couple with a toddler. Nobody injured. A few weeks ago when I was cycling the road a cyclist told me some dudes tried to pull him off his bike. This area is a real hotspot at the moment :(

Another mugging at Kleinplaas dam yesterday ☹️ Apparently "the main culprit was caught with the stolen phone by Ocean View SAPS after the owner tracked his cell"
