BRITISH holidaymakers in the Bahamas have been warned about violent crimes and armed robberies. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) urged tourists to be ‘vigilant at all times’ in an update on crime in the islands.
The FCO’s updated travel advisory says: ‘There have been incidents of violent crime including robbery, which is often armed and sometimes fatal, in residential and tourist areas of New Providence, Grand Bahama and Freeport. The number of break-ins and robbery incidents reported to the High Commission has increased. There are police patrols in the main tourist areas.
‘Be vigilant at all times and don’t walk alone away from the main hotels, tourist areas, beaches and downtown Nassau, particularly after dark. Take care if travelling on local bus services after dusk on routes away from the main tourist areas. Do not carry large amounts of cash or jewellery. Robbers might be armed. Do not resist in the event of an attempted robbery.’
