Cape Town - Security has been stepped up on Table Mountain yet again after a cyclist was attacked and robbed by two men this week.

Graham Redelinghuys, 50, of Silvertown, Athlone, was riding his mountain bike towards Woodstock from the King’s Blockhouse, near Rhodes Memorial, at 1.45pm on Monday when two men jumped out from bushes and attacked him, said police spokesman Warrant Officer November Filander.

Redelinghuys was pulled to the ground and choked. During the struggle, the two men grabbed his cellphone and bicycle and fled.

Redelinghuys was not seriously injured.

“The suspects have been identified as two males aged between 25 and 27 and both were neatly attired.”

“Security has been boosted in the area,” Filander said.
