This is a article from a facebook posting today.
Last night while walking on the beach path from the Marriott to the Ritz, my husband and I were ROBBED at GUNPOINT by two young guys, one in a hoody. The kid literally told us he would shoot us and pointed the gun in our faces...It happened on the little bridge just before the firepit at the Ritz. I know they chose this area because it's very dark and in between the properties. They probably also assumed we had money and were staying at these properties, which we weren't. We ...were just going for a walk. Luckily we stayed calm and they got away with my phone and just over a hundred dollars cash. I immediately ran screaming into the Ritz and they promptly called the police, who came immeditately and took a full report; we are still dealing with the aftermath of this. My phone is a black Google Nexus 4 with a clear case and some cracks on the back. If you turn it on it has a pic of my dog, a German Shepherd. If they couldn't unlock it, they may have thrown it on the beach. If you find it or if you see two brownish guys (not black, not white), about 5'6" tall, pretty slender who speak English with an accent and wearing more clothes than normal for this area and acting suspicious, please call the police right away. But more importantly, do not walk through that area without several people or a lot of light and keep an eye out that noone is following you. I know they strategized this because I saw them acting weird at the Marriott before we got on the trail. This island is not as safe as everyone says it is. If that can happen on Ritz property at 9 pm, it can happen here anywhere.
