There’s been another tourist attack in New Zealand, this time in Nelson.
From an article in Stuff.co.nz we learn:
A German tourist was kicked, punched and robbed by two men in Nelson early today. The 29-year-old man told police he was approached by a man in Rutherford St about 3am. He was then attacked from behind by a second man.
The attackers kicked and punched him before taking his belongings and running off in the direction of the Montgomery car park.They took the tourist’s Nike sports bag, which contained his passport and wallet with cash in 100 and 50 euro notes, along with items of clothing…
The man’s name has not been released. It is unlikely to be made public until such time as he can be quoted as saying the attack didn’t spoil his enjoyment of New Zealand.
He has our deepest condolences, and we wish him a safe onward journey from a country with a penchant for bashing tourists.
