A man has been arrested by Cape Town police, following an incident where tourists were attacked by muggers on Lions Head yesterday. According to media reports, two groups of hikers were attacked by two men armed with knives.

A member of the public alerted police of the mugging but the attackers managed to flee. Police officers were dispatched and police apprehended a suspected mugger.

Spokesperson for the SAPS Randall Stoffels says “the tourists were robbed of their cell phones, rucksacks and cameras. An extensive police launch was executed yesterday and a 35-year-old man was arrested.”

After a further investigation the man was released because the tourists were not able to identify him. None of the stolen items have been found.
