This after a 39-year-old Egyptian was robbed and stabbed nine times on Sunday. The incident brought to 17 the number of muggings in that area, according to Table Mountain Watch.
Table Mountain Watch spokesperson Andre van Schalkwyk said: “Without a shadow of a doubt, people should not go there. It would be irresponsible not to warn people about the life-threatening area, rather let them risk their lives knowing the possible dangers.
"These incidents could have been prevented years ago if there were long-term solutions. It is frustrating that there are no rangers or visible policing in the area despite countless attacks”, Van Schalkwyk said.
Lion’s Head, Silvermine, Sandy Bay and Noordhoek were among the areas that have been flagged as a crime hot spot along with nearby Karbonkelberg.
