Cyclist robbed at knife point

A 56-year-old woman was robbed at knifepoint of cash, her cellphone and bicycle valued at R36 000, on Saturday March 3, while cycling in Clovelly.

Police spokesman, Warrant Officer Peter Middelton said she had been travelling on a pathway through the Clovelly Golf Course/Wetlands towards Ou Kaapse Weg when a man jumped from the bushes with a knife and threatened to kill her if she refused to hand over her belongings.
