    Its time we fought back and stop watching things happen. Taking out devices and recording stuff when we should be helping people! Im glad he was caught, his ass will be sore from the licks he will get, stop taking people stuff and work for ur own. He got energy to snatch and run but not enough to work stupse…#kmt

    Sadly the more this happens the more I consider going somewhere else. Don’t get me wrong it can happen anywhere but these cowardly acts are going to damage tourism in BIM

    When I was down there in Nov. I saw people walking on the boardwalk at night and thought – what are they thinking?!!

      The thing is that people must be told how dangerous it can be – even in daylight anywhere in tourist areas not just Barbados. No wearing of jewelry or carrying valuables, etc.

    I love it how the south coast people keep sticking up for their one-another and chasing down petty thieves praying on people on the beach. Some of these homeless people could go and work instead of praying on the tourists. It’s good to keep this in check before these criminals start feeling emboldened to start breaking people houses. To the citizens that jumped in, GREAT JOB! KUDOS to you.

    Where are all my sycophantic friends, bad-talking tourism? At least, these courageous Bajan citizens who earn their living from tourism, know it’s true , critical national value!
    Take a bow guys…with our gratitude for standing up for what really matters. Less talk, less propaganda, more action.
    Keep Barbados First!

    I really really wish that the would put more lights on the boardwalk….

    I sorry that he was not beaten to a pulp until the police arrived.

    Well done for catching the thief. I am so glad the woman wasn’t hurt but my advice to anyone out walking would be not to carry a handbag or wear expensive jewellery. I would advise this anywhere, not just in Barbados!

    Could this be a lesson ,to our failed government, these guys ,done this for Barbados, they protected ,people as visitors to our island… I would think ,installing street lighting ,in the area ,should be a priority,but who in government, would take the time to put this right ,for Barbados…

    Speaking as someone who is visiting Barbados next month, reading this does concern me, but how wonderful to read that other people helped her and apprehended the offender.
