Residents are reminded to practice caution when exercising outdoors after yet another report of a mugging came through over the weekend. This recent crime trend has become a serious cause for concern throughout the Durban area.
A father and his daughter were walking along Valley View Road in Escombe, when two suspects approached them, assaulting the man and wrestling him to the ground. The suspects robbed him of his wallet, before fleeing into the community. The incident occurred at around 8:40.
