Country Name: SVG

Location Detail: Bequia Princess Margaret Beach

EVENT: Robbery

Stolen Items: Small waterproof bag containing a camera and personal items.


We were returning to our boat after an evening out. I had just stepped onto the dinghy dock when a man suddenly appeared right behind me and grabbed my small waterproof shoulder bag. It was around my neck so he used a machete and cut the strap. He ran away down the beach and into the woods.

No injuries, but reported to Police, Coast Guard, local VHF Net, and Bequia Tourism Office.
