Thomas was mugged while accompanied by his young daughter. Thieves often work in groups and intimidate tourists into handing over their belongings. The pair were approached suddenly by armed men who demanded their belongings. Concerned for his daughter’s safety, Thomas quickly handed over everything he had including his wallet, jewellery, camera, belt and Queensland Reds hoodie. The thieves then fled. Shaken but unharmed, Thomas and his daughter reported the robbery to police. Thomas’s travel insurance reimbursed him for the stolen items.
